Øygarden 19 January 2014 - Where Eagles fly

The strong easterly winds continue. Temperature hovering around freezing point.

One of two White-tailed Eagles havørn at Dåvøy - too close to fit the whole bird in frame

A quick check at a couple of localities produced barely the usual fare. A Common Snipe enkeltbekkasin at Dåvøy and a couple of Greylags grågås flying south over Nautnes were the best of the sightings.

White-tailed Eagles havørn were very obvious with two birds giving cracking views at Dåvøy, three over Tjeldstø and another at Nautnes.

At Solberg well over 100 Eiders ærfugl were on the sea in addition to a flock of Long-tailed Duck havelle.
