Øygarden 04 November 2017 - Drive-bys

Brisk South-westerly winds, rain much of the day.

No time for anything other than a few brief drive-bys today - just as well as it would have been hard going at times today.

White-tailed Eagle havørn from the terrace (and elsewhere) and a Brambling bjørkefink in the garden.

At Blomvatnet just a couple of Wigeon brunnakke and four Goldeneye kvinand  - the latter species is still arriving with not many about yet.

At Harkestad a flock of Long-tailed Tits stjertmeis put in a welcome appearance - otherwise just small numbers of the usual thrushes and Starling stær along with a presumed Meadow Pipit heipiplerke - frustratingly many of the pipits about at the moment are not calling at all.....

Tjeldstø produced more Redwing rødvingetrost, Brambling bjørkefink, Blackcap munk and the usual suspects.
