Øygarden 12 January 2019 - Øygarden medley

Light south easterly winds. Rather dull with rain after around 1300.

A Woodcock rugde flying over my house around dawn was a good start to the day.

Next up was a trip to Hjelme West where a small flock of Purple Sandpiper fjæreplytt were new for the year, as was a first year Kittiwake krykkje. Many of the usual suspects were also present with a Great Northern Diver islom, a Black Guillemot teist, a Curlew storpsove, four White-tailed Eagles havørn and the usual ducks.

Dåvøy produced nothing much other than a couple of White-tailed Eagles havørn.

Tjeldstø was almost equally unproductive with a singles of Sparrowhawk spurvehauk and White-tailed Eagle havørn and six Whoopers sangsvane among the birds seen.

Very good views of Otters at Hjelme West (2 +1), Dåvøy (2) and in front of my house.
