Nautnes 09 Febraury 2014 - First spring migrants?

Relatively mild, winds more or less from the south.

Four Oystercatcher tjeld (picture taken from my terrace)

New for the new house list this morning were a party of four Oystercatcher tjeld. This is a large flock by winter standards and there have been only a couple of observations during the winter months. Its a little on the early side but these were probably newly arrived birds - most likely from the UK if rings found in local Eagle Owl hubro nests are indicative of the rest of the population.

Otherwise just a couple of Jackdaw kaie and 20 Starling stær at Skogsøy and a couple of Velvet Scoter sjøorre at Herdlevær.
