The dog doesn't get too excited about White-bills....
in the garden
A superb day on all counts, with lovely weather and plenty of birds. Quality rather than quantity was the name of the game today with four fantastic summer plumaged White-billed Diver gulnebblom
heading north at close range. Another large diver passed by close but due to a number of mitigating circumstances could not be clinched - frustrating.
A few small flocks of Barnacle Geese hvitkingås
totalling over 120 may be the forerunner of things to come - perhaps they will pass in thier thoudands tomorrow....
Other stuff included 70 Red-throated Diver smålom
, a couple of Great Skua storjo
and the first Black Guillemot teist
for a while.
Back home at Tjeldstø a couple of Siskin grønsisik
were in the garden along with the chaffinches.
