Nautnes 12 March 2015 - Incidental birding

Woke up to glorious sunny and calm weather.

With a mildly-put hectic morning any birding was at best incidental. But this being Øygarden means that all was not lost.

My morning coffee on the terrace produced a singing Grey-headed Woodpecker gråspett and a fly-over Woodpigeon ringdue.

Amazingly, after not seeing any local GH Woodpecker for a few months  I got out of the car at Bakken to pick up one of my daughters at school and had another singing bird on a telegraph pole. A Great-spotted Woodpecker flaggspett sat on a nearby pole.

Elsewhere a couple of Mistle Thrush duetrost were reported from Skjold.
