Herdla, Hella and city centre. At Herdla the Black Redstart still present, only flying around and disappearing after some minutes. No pics, but it was a county tick for me. A group of Purple Sandpipers and two Turnstones were showing well.
At Hella on Rad√ły the Black-bellied Brent still present togerther with a Tundra Bean Goose among Greylags.
In Bergen centre a Glaucous Gull and an Iceland Gull together.
Good birding today!!
