Øygarden 22 November 2006

Some interesting Woodpeckers at Hjelme......

A brief look at Hjelme was quite productive with good Øygarden species such a Bullfinch dompap and Yellowhammer gulspurv noted. Late migrants still around in the form of a female Blackcap munk and a Chiff-chaff gransanger. Otherwise just a couple of Woodcock rugde, a Little Auk alkekonge, two White-tailed Eagle havørn and two Sparrowhawk spurvhauk

Best birds here were two probable Pine Grosbeak konglebit, although having not heard them calling for some time I couldn't be 100% sure......

A large flock of Redpoll, probably Mealy Redpoll gråsisik totalling at least 80 dropped into some trees at Tjeldstø - not exactly an everyday occurrence.
