Herdla: waders coming (and going)

After a very busy period working and painting our house, finally a trip to Herdla. It paid off. Spent three hours. Best bird was a Spotted Redshank, however reluctant to hit the ground. Just touch and go. Further three adult Little Sint, a Wood Sandpiper, a Common Sandpiper, three Greenshank, nine Redshanks, seven Ruff, a Snipe and two Curlews.

Too early in the year for passerines, I suppose. Worth mentioning are a Whinchat and a Lesser Whitethroat. Near Åsebø two Nutcrackers.
