Dåvøy 18 January 2016 - Slav grebe test shoot

Calm with some snow showers.

Porpoises nise

Slavonian Grebe horndykker taken with point and pray superzoom

...and with the usual DSLR & 400mm telephoto lens

Went to Dåvøy to see the regularly wintering Slavonian (Horned) Grebe horndykker that was seen there a few days ago. This showed quite well and I took some pictures with my latest point and pray superzoom - very happy with the results from this cheapo camera.

Other stuff in the area included a family of Porpoises nise, a few Guillemot lomvi, a Curlew storspove, a Woodcock rugde, a Rock Pipit skjærpiplerke and most of the usual suspects. Some fresh Water Rail vannrikse tracks also here.

Whoopers sangsvane with point and pray coming out of the bag for the second time today.

The Dipper fossekall remained at Alvheim whilst six adult Whoopers sangsvane and a female Tufted Duck toppand were on Storavatnet.

Back home a Nautnes a couple of Brambling bjørkefink in the garden along with 15 Siskin grønnsisik, a Sparrowhawk spurvehauk and all the garden regulars - numbers of Robin rødstrupe and Blackbird svarttrost both seem to be increasing.
