Tjeldstø 06 April 2014 - "delayed" firsts

Walked around the reserve and picked up a Reed Bunting sivspurv - the first of the year and a bird I thought I had heard several days ago...nice to get it confirmed.

The feature of the day was a good movement of thrushes with hundreds of Fieldfare gråtrost and Starling stær both moving through and feeding in the fields. Some tens of Redwing rødvingetrost and Blackbird svarttrost too.

A drive-by at Kollsnes produced a singing Skylark sanglerke - another species I have probably heard over the last week or so but always drowned out by other calls and songs.
