Tjeldstø 10 October 2012 - Buff-bellied confirmed!

Overcast with light rain.

Yesterday's BUFF-BELLIED PIPIT MYRPIPLERKE was still present. This is only the second record of the American race for Norway.

It was heard calling again a few times today - enough to clinch the ID for my part. It was much more flighty today in the company of a couple of White Wagtails linerle.

At the time of writing only two other birders have connected with it but there are a few more looking for it.

Plenty of other birds about today including a Little Grebe dvergdykker, a Goshawk hønsehauk and a flock of at least 15 Twite bergirisk.

A Yellow-browed Warbler gulbrynsanger was also reported from Tjeldstø (heard only).
