Early morning Carrion Crow at Flesland

 I was awake very early, so I made a quick trip to Flesland. On the airstrip a distant Carrion Crow was present with a Hooded Crow. It flew off, but may still be there somewhere...The Pink-footed Goose was still there with a group of Greylags. Otherwise the usual suspects with singing Linnet and Lesser Redpoll as well as two Northern Wheatears. On the way back tried for the Glaucous Gull at the Tveitevannet which I digiscoped. I have to practice a bit , but it's fun!

Later on the day we had a family trip to Herdla. Both Anne and Robin had been ill for a long time (no Covid), so it was supernice to visit the wetland in nice weather together. Birdwise it was quiet, but two Ruddy Turnstones, singing Dunlins, a flyby Greenshank, about 20 Northern Wheatears and a Pied Wagtail are worth mentioning as well as longstayers such as Barnacle Goose and a Pink-footed Goose.
