Hjelme Vest 28 February 2014 - Otter and Red-necked Grebe

Relatively calm and very pleasant.

A stroll and a quick look at the sea at Hjelme Vest proved quite productive today - highlight was a Red-necked Grebe gråstrupedykker. The supporting cast included a Great Northern Diver islom feeding offshore, a couple of flocks of Purple Sandpipers fjæreplytt, a Curlew storspove and an Oystarcatcher tjeld.

Greylags grågås have also started to arrive on the offshore islands and were scared up by the local White-tailed Eagles havørn.

A large male Otter came ashore and spent some time marking up his territory along the shoreline.
