Greenshank at the Kalandsvannet

A walk with my daughter along the Kalandsvannet near Kismul produced a new bird for my Bergen list: a flyby Greenshank. Further lots of active birds about. Two Icterine Warblers, a Garden Warbler, numerous Blackcaps, two Mealy Redpols, a Cuckoo and the Black-throated Diver still present on the lake.

Only the second time this year on Herdla...Quiet, but highlights were a group of seven Black-tailed Godwits, two Mute Swans (!), a Cuckoo and two Whimbrels
