Herdlevær 11 July 2015 - First "real" autumn waders

Light southerlies with drizzle most of the afternoon.

One of two Greenshank gluttsnipe present at Kollsnes this evening

Herdlevær produced nothing other than the usual suspects but a couple of Greenshank gluttsnipe at nearby Kollsnes were the first of the autumn. Elsewhere two Knot polarsnipe were reported.

Other sightings included a couple of Woodcock rugde at Skjold, a Ringed Plover sandlo still at Sture - indicating that the regular breeders are tolerating the disturbance in that area, a couple of House martin taksvale and  the male Wigeon brunnakke were still present at Tjeldstø.
