Tjeldstø 02 April 2014 - Good coverage pays off

Cracking weather again -. calm and sunny.

At last gave the reserve a decent amount of coverage - this paid off quite well with a few more new for Øygarden for me this year - two Mistle Thrush duetrost being the highlights (a few turned up whislt I was last away). A pair of Tufted Duck toppand on Husvatnet and a fly over Linnet tornirisk (first seen in Øygarden yesterday) were the other new stuff.

A minimum of six White-tailed Eagles havørn, 12 Heron gråhegre (the most I have seen at Tjeldstø for some time), a pair of Teal krikkand, at least eight Lapwing vipe, a few Lesser Black-becked Gulls sildemåke and plenty of birdsong from a range of newly arrived species.
