Solberg 21 February 2014 - Goldie

Fresh southerly wind, occasional showers.

Seemed like nothing much was going on and with rain looking likely I left the camera in the car. This unfounded pessimism meant that I didn't get any photos of a cracking Golden Eagle kongeørn that came by at close range over Solberg. However, it was a great experience to watch it in the scope instead of taking pictures. And no downloading stuff later on either....

Other birds at Solberg included a couple of Oystercatcher tjeld - almost definitely new migrants - it is bang on time for them to be arriving., a Curlew storspove, about 60 Long-tailed Duck havelle and a White-tailed Eagle havørn or two.

At Tjeldstø a few Greylags grågås on Rotevatnet and several Whoopers sangsvane.
