Øygarden 28 December 2011

Strong southerly gale and rain. Challenging conditions to put it mildly.

With very little light and a lot of water scanning the sea at Dåvøy and Solberg produced little - although the duck flocks were relatively close in at the latter locality. At Solberg a diver on the sea managed to evade identification.

Once again Tjeldstø saved the day with the flock of nine rossicus Bean Goose sædgås and two Pinkfeet kortnebbgås back in the fields. Hope they stay for the upcoming New Year Bird Race....
