This weekend two Firecrests were found at Knarrevik, just outside Bergen. I didn't have time until this morning. After an hour or so searching in bad weather I found them back. Egil and Laila Frantzen and Walter Lemme joined me after a little while. The two birds were calling frequently and although it was impossible to take pictures, they showed rather well every now and then. Without doubt the most beautiful bird of Europe.
Otherwise a (sub)singing Hawfinch this morning in my garden. Yesterday a flyby Peregrine over my house and last week the Hawk Owl of Trengereidåsen. Not many pictures lately though. Bad weather!!
