Øygarden 04 February 2015 - Freezing conditions = Water Rail

Very calm and sunny.

The cold weather continues with temperatures dropping below freezing at night. Although it was wonderful to be out and about in the fantastic weather there was nothing out of the ordinary at Herdlevær today - just the usual selection of duck on the sea and a single Black Guillemot teist.

Bird of the day was a roadside Water Rail vannrikse at Alvheim during an evening trip to the shops. The bird was very vocal which made it easy to locate.
