Tjledstø 27 January 2018 - Scaup movement?

Not out today really but did a drive-by past Tjeldstø.

Two Scaup bergand on Husvatnet

albifrons Whitefront tundragås

A pair of Scaup bergand on Husvatnet were the best sighting and an albifrons Whitefront tundragås flew in and landed. The second sighting of Scaup in as many days may indicate some kind of a movement of this species.

Otherwise just a small flock of Starling stær, a Snipe enkeltbekkasin and a Rock pipit skjærpiplerke in addition to the usual thrushes etc.

Back home at least two White-tailed Eagle havørn put in an appearance and the Willow Tit granmeis that recently started using the garden made it onto the list for the national Garden Bird Count which is this weekend.
