Tjeldstø 08 August 2016 - One minute to bird

Strong southerly winds with showers.

A one minute stop at Husvatnet produced a family party of Whinchats buskskvett - the first I've had in Øygarden this year and a sighting that very much fits the typical pattern of occurrence.

Other recent sightings have included some Common Tern makrellterne migration and a couple of Greenshank gluttsnipe at Nautnes plus the usual White-tailed Eagle havørn etc.

Oystercatchers tjeld and Greylags grågås now on the move or getting ready to leave any day now,
