Weekend at Hardanger and a bit of Bergen

Made a trip to the Hardanger fjord with Anne. This is probably our last weekend alone, because I have to work next weekend and after that it's (birding) life is going to be a bit different...
I couldn't find the reported Garganey at Norheimsund, only the first since 2009 in Hordaland. At Ulvik we enjoyed the beautiful fjord views, but no birds worth mentioning.
On the way back in Bergsdalen a singing Common Redstart, Ring Ouzel and Grey-headed Woodpecker. Back in Bergen Anne had to rest a bit, so I took the chance to visit Skeie for the Wrynecks. They behave secretive. I only heard one once. At Ortuvannet in Fyllingdalen I did the Mandarin Duck for my Bergen list...
