Hjelme Vest 09 March 2015 - Oystercatcher influx

Southerly winds and decent enough weather.

No time to be out in any meaningful way today - just a quick walk with the dog at Hjelme Vest. Once again rather quiet with the only new stuff being an increase in Oystercatcher tjeld numbers - 22 were resting on the islands here. Otherwise just a flock of approximately 60 Long-tailed Duck havelle, a White-tailed Eagle havørn and the usual suspects.

More Greylags grågås obviously arriving daily with numbers up again on Husvatnet, Tjeldstø and turning up at other places including Nautnes where the first Chaffinch bokfink since early January turned up in the garden.
