Hernar 25 September 2014 - A chance that had to be taken

Dull, showery and with winds around south.

A morning on Hernar failed to produce any scarce birds but was far from a waste of time - the first Water Rail(s) vannriske for the island this year turned up and a flock of around 80 Barnacle Geese hvitkinngås headed south.

Other stuff inlcuded at least 20 Twite bergirisk, several Chiff-chaff gransanger, a Blackcap munk and the usual Black Grouse orrfugl.
