Øygarden 06 January 2013 - Spring

Calm and mild again, very misty early on but clearing later.

Concentrated on the south of Øygarden today with very limited results. A singing Blackbird svarttrost gave the morning a feeling of Spring for a little while at least.

Covered several localities without anything special - plenty of White-tailed Eagles havørn, a Sparrowhawk spurvehauk, a couple of Rock Pipit skjærpiplerke, all the usual seaduck and a few flocks of unidentified Crossbills korsnebber.

A lone Fieldfare gråtrost at Oen was the first of the year and a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker dvergspett reported from Skjold was probably the bird of the day in Øygarden.
