Tjeldstø 09 August 2015 - What I call nice weather.

Southerly winds, overcast and mild.

Not what most people call good summer weather during an early stroll around Tjeldstø but ideal conditions for some grounded waders.

Highlight was a Spotted Redshank sotsnipe - looked like an adult so not the same bird as yesterday. Also migrating Greenshanks gluttsnipe, a Redshank rødstilk sounding like it still has young in the area, a first summer Lapwing vipe, a Curlew storspove and a flock of around 20 Snipe enkeltbekkasin.
