Parrot Crossbills at Herdla

Finally a day off alone, so I decided for Herdla. A nice stroll produced two White-fronted Geese, some 150 Greylags and 11 Pink-footed Geese. Also two Razorbills, a Red-necked Grebe, two Slavonian Grebes and a Jack Snipe. No sign of the Richard'd Pipit. A calling Great Northern Diver also present. Best part was at the fort, with some 25 Parrot Crossbills (at least I think so) and a Marsh Tit!
