Nautnes 30 September 2015 - Pallid again!

Southerly winds, overcast early on but clearing later.

Work prevented any time in the field but as this is Øygarden my "office" window produced the goods again.Amazingly yesterday's Pallid Harrier steppehauk put on a show today too - seemingly settling into some kind of routine whereby it hunted in front of the house and then behind it followed by a period of absence before returning to do the same thing again.

A few twitchers from town gave it a go, some, but not all, connected with this cracking bird. Today's picture showed something rather odd with the tail - it seemed both longer and more worn than expected.

Above two - to put it mildly the tail on this thing looks odd!

We have now passed the standard of record shot and are verging on something worthwhile for anything other than ID purposes


Some view from the office....

Other stuff was obviously on the move, a Yellow-browed Warbler gulbrynsanger came dangerously close to the house (<50m also="" at="" color="#00ffff" font="" lots="" of="" one="" point="" starling="">stær
and plenty of various thrushes. A Common Sandpiper strandsnipe was relatively late and theWhite-tailed Eagles havørn were ever present.
