Herdlevær 16 February 2014 - At last a morning out

Decent weather with light south(ish) winds and just a few short, light showers

The day's almost obligatory White-tailed Eagle havørn shot

Spring is on its way here in Øygarden - these snowdrops have been out for more than a week

Highlights at Herdlevær today were a Red-throated Diver smålom heading north, a Greylag grågås flying over and a dead Curlew storspove (probably killed by a raptor).

Other almost noteworthy sightings included a couple of Kittiwake krykkje and a Gannet havsule.

Fieldfare gråtrost

A flock of about 25 Fieldfare gråtrost were in fields at Kollsnes along with a few Starling stær. A flock of 20 Starling stær were at Skjold.

The Bergen gang were on a field trip today and notched up the usual suspects including a few Great Northern Diver islom.
