Øygarden 01 November 2017 - Clearout?

Strong SW winds and rain much of the day.

Significantly fewer birds about today - the flocks of thrushes in the fields and crossbills overhead were pretty much absent today.

Nuthatch spettmeis at Sæle

It was not completely birdless though with Blackcaps munk at Tjeldstø and Sæle, Snipe enkeltbekkasin here and there, White-tailed Eagles havørn, flocks of Starling stær more or less everywhere and still some woodland species about that are normally uncommon such as Willow Tits granmeis and Nuthatch spettmeis.

Rock Pipits skjærpiplerke were seen here and there but only one Meadow Pipit heipiplerke.
