Skipped school today for a little birding, so went off to Herdla. Met Eirik Nydal Adolfsen and together we spent some hours. Nothing out of the ordinary, but good numbers of waders. Lots of Ruff, Golden Plovers, Dunlin, Ringed Plover, Bar-tailed Godwits, three Little Stints and two or three Curlew Sandpiper. A Sparrowhawk and a Peregrine were hunting flyby's.
