Herdlevær 15 April 2013 - Corvid bonanza

Strong southerlies, overcast but largely dry.

Carrion Crow svartkråke - sure to get the twitchers out to Øygarden....

Rook kornkråke - first for Øygarden this year (and another species most of the twitchers don't yet have this year)

Jackdaws kaie

Yesterday's weather obviously produced some results. Highlights were all corvids around the parking area at Skogsøy. First and best was a Carrion Crow svartkråke. Whilst taking some record shots of this bird a Rook kornkråke and nine Jackdaw kaie turned up.

Black-headed Gull hettemåke

Common Gull fiskemåke

Gannet havsule

Teal krikkand

Herdlevær itself didn't produce much of interest but some grounded migrants were seen - a couple of Song Thrush måltrost, several Redwing rødvingetrost and a number of Blackbird svarttrost.
