Øygarden 12 September 2015 - Falsterbo light

Calm, sunny and light easterly winds again.

A stroll at Herdlevær first thing produced five species of raptor - a couple of White-tailed Eagle havørn, a Peregrine vandrefalk, a Merlin dvergfalk and several each of Kestrel tårnfalk and Sparrowhawk spurvehauk.

Best bird was a probable fly-by Wryneck vendehals but I'm not claiming anything.

There was also and obvious movement of waders - largely Golden Plover heilo.

Elsewhere the first Brambling bjørkefink of the autumn turned up at Hjelme West and more of all the raptors seen at Herdlevær earlier in the day were seen at Tjeldstø and Nautnes-

A Rook kornkråke at Tjeldstø could conceivably be the same long staying bird from earlier in the year.
