Wood Warbler

Yesterday I visited a little farm at Fjøsanger in Bergen with my daughter Robin. While playing and walking around I heard a Wood Warbler sing a few times. Didn't have any things with me, so no documentation, but this morning the bird was reported again. Anyhow, it is heard by other people as well.

Dutch Birding

A midweek in the Netherlands to visit family gave me some time to bird. A trip with my brother produced some dutch birds. Not much special though. However, a fine White-spotted Bluethroat Luscinia svecica cyanecula showed well at Nooitgedacht...White Stork has become a common bird in the Netherlands again.

a little bit of spring

I was at the biologisk stasjon today and it tasted as spring as two Dunnocks, a Chiffchaff and a Song Thrush were singing...Further a Long-tailed Duck at sea at quite a distance.

Tundra Bean Geese still present

The two Tundra Bean Geese were still present today at Skeie, Rådal in Bergen. Didn't get any pics before though. Further the first singing Skylark at Flesland!

Otherwise not much birding lately...
