gentle rain on Herdlevær

 Tuesday free, so I decided to go to Herdlevær. On the 16th of September autumn migration should be in full swing and so it was today. A continuous, gentle rain produced rather a lot of birds "on the ground". Best bird was a Western Yellow Wagtail (I think a first-winter flava) together with a group of Meadow Pipits. Further lots of Fieldfares, a few Redwings, Song Thrushes, 4 Goldfinches, Linnets and Twites. A Blackcap, one Willow Warbler and three Chiffchaffs on the Phylloscopus- front and a flyby Merlin was quite a long time ago for me. Waders included a few Golden Plovers, a Grey Plover and a Common Sand Plover, all flyby's.
