Tjeldstø 15 November - Never give up

Gale force south westerly winds and torrential rain.

Foul weather and other commitments kept me in most of the day, but undeterred by the floods etc I ventured out for a quick look around at Tjeldstø where the first Mistle Thrush duetrost of the autumn showed briefly. Bad weather turns up good birds......

Late autumn is a good time to connect with this scarce but regular visitor but this is quite a late date - perhaps due to the relatively mild autumn thus far.

A few Snipe enkeltbekkasin and small numbers of the usual thrushes and Starlings stær were the only other migrants.
