Sørgardsvatnet 08 October 2017 - Vis mig

Calm and sunny.

I spent a couple of hours watching the ringing at Sørgardsvatnet. LOTS of birds on the move with at least 4000 Fieldfare gråtrost flying over - all heading north as did hundreds of Redwing rødvingetrost and a few hundred Brambling bjørkedfink.

Best bird in an Øygarden context were a couple of Willow Tit granmeis - the first of the year for me out here.
A Jay nøtteskrike, a few Parrot Crossbill furukorsnebb, some flocks of Common Crossbill grankorsnebb. Lots of Redpoll (both Lesser and Common), a Chiff-chaff gransanger, two Goldfinch stillits and a couple of Water Rail vannrikse were among the other sightings here.

A Woodcock rugde flew over my house in the morning - first of the autumn for me.
