Øygarden 11-13 February 2014 - Life getting in the way....

Frustration mounts as between work and family there is just not the time to get out.

All birding has been pretty much incidental.  A Song Thrush måltrost at Nautnes on 11th may have been an early migrant. At least three singing Robins rødstrupe and snowdrops in blossom gave this day a rather spring-like feel.

A few Greylags grågås joined Whoopers sangsvane on Husvatnet at Tjeldstø on 12th - possibly very early arrivals.

On 13th the first Common Gull fiskemåke for me this year in Øygarden was at Kollsnes. Three Jackdaw kaie and about 15 Starling stær were seen on a drive-by at Skogsøy.
