Tjeldstø 11-13 May 2013 - More new arrivals

Little time spent out and about.

Hawfinch kjernebiter in the garden

On 11 May the Hawfinch kjernebiter was still present in the garden and I saw it or another at the other end of Tjeldstø later in the day. Singing Reed Bunting sivspurv and Lesser Whitethroat møller were both first of the year at Tjeldstø.

More and more Greylags grågås now have young

The long-staying Rook kornkråke

Swallow låvesvale

Three new for the year were seen in / from the garden the following day: a pair of Twite bergirisk, a Common Tern makrellterne and a singing Whitethroat tornsanger.

A short and wet walk on 13 May produced a Red-throated Diver smålom flying south over the reserve and another sighting of the Rook kornkråke that has been hanging around for several days at least.

Greylags grågås have started hatching with more goslings seen each day.
