Herdlevær 08 November 2013 - Late migrants

Strong SW winds, heavy showers at times.

A Yellowhammer gulspurv was a new species for the rapidly growing house list as I left for a quick walk at Herdlevær.

A lone Little Auk alkekonge flew past whilst I ate breakfast

Still some migrating Common Gulls fiskemåke to be seen

Hooded Crow kråke

Greylags grågås

Herdlevær was relatively quiet with three Jackdaw kaie as best birds. Otherwise just a Little Auk alkekonge, some Snipe enkeltbekkasin and most of the usual suspects including at least three White-tailed Eagle havørn. Over 30 Common Scoter svartand on the sea was the only other sighting of note.

A trip to the shops produced three Greylags grågås near Blomvåg. At this time of year any geese are interesting.....
