For the most part a grey and wet Christmas.
I was out in some form every day, ranging from short strolls in downtown Oslo to 10km+ walks in the surrounding area.
Bygdøy on 20 December produced Black Woodpecker svartspett and five Purple Sandpipers fjæreplytt as the best sightings.
Gressholmen on 22 December was very quiet for the most part but a Goshawk hønsehauk looked like it was hunting the many rodents there. Red-throated Divers smålom, Guillemots lomvi and Razorbill alke gave good views from the boat. An unusual finding was a dead Lesser Spotted Dogfish on the shore.
A long walk around Bogstadsvannet on 23 December produced a Hawk Owl haukugle as the best bird along with Black Woodpecker svartspett, Dipper fossekall and most of the usual stuff.
