Tjeldstø 21 November 2006

Not out birding at all today but half an hour with the 'scope from the sitting room showed that there was quite a bit of activity over Hjeltefjord. Highlights were a Red-necked Grebe gråstrupedykker (new species for the house and only the second record for Tjeldstø). Other birds included 22 Little Auk alkekonge, a Red-throated Diver smålom and a Velvet Scoter sjøorre. All birds heading south.

A late Greylag Goose grågås in the fields may be the same bird seen earlier in the month.
