Dåvøy 03 February - A short diversion

Strong north westerly winds with wintry showers

Managed to squeeze in a short diversion and spent whole half an hour at Dåvøy today - pick of the sightings was the overwintering Slavonian Grebe horndykker. The usual selection of stuff including a Rock Pipit skjærpiplerke getting quite upset about a Sparrowhawk spurvehauk.

Bird of the day was seen from the car whilst continuing with the afternoon school / shop run - a nice Goshawk hønsehauk over the road at Tjeldstø.

Back home a Curlew storspove flew over the house - first I've seen thus far this year at Nautnes, normally this is quite a regular winter bird from the kitchen window.
