Øygarden 03 December 2015 - Long time no see

Clear and almost sunny.

A short trip out "to post Christmas cards" resulted in a few birds I haven't seen for quite a while - two Lapwing vipe at Skogsøy, a couple of Goshawks hønsehauk (an adult VERY full after eating a Herring Gull gråmåke) and a first year bird.

Also a small flock of Common Crossbill grankorsnebb, several Starling stær and a few White-tailed Eagle havørn.

At Tjeldstø the Whooper sangsvane numbers had swelled to nine birds - finally including a single first year bird.
