Rock Ptarmigan in Bergen

While others spend 1 may at Skogsøy for the Yellow-billed Diver bonanza (and it was with 37 individuals today), I went with my family to Austefjell, Gullfjellet. It was cold, but sunny weather. On top we had a splendid male Rock Ptarmigan which showed well. This one new for my Bergen list!
Further some other mountain specialities: two singing Ring Ouzels, a Rough-legged Buzzard, five Wheatears and a Common Sandpiper (at Osavannet).
I'll probably go back a little later in the season to try Dotterel and Golden Plover.
