OSLO BIRDER: Jæren 2022 

Firecrest (rødtoppfuglekonge)

3 days birding in Jæren consisting of a very early birders xmases supper with 17 like minded individual benefited the heart and soul.

We had wonderful blue skies and also with winds from the eastern and also the initial hefty frost of the fall Kjell was anticipating a variety of interesting birds to be pressed out to the shore. That had not been the instance though and also we discovered no uncommon wheatears or pipits yet there was a big arrival of geese with lots of White-fronts and also a couple of Tunda Beans together with Pink-feets.

Rarest passerine was a Firecrest that we discovered and also 3 various Stonechat was a certain indicator that they have had an excellent year. I saw both Lengthy- and also Short-eared Owls, Chicken Harrier and also Rough-legged Buzzard. On the sea we had wonderful close sights of Great Northern Divers and also a solitary Little Auk was my initial of the year.

However was actually strikes you with a journey to Jæren is the large variety of birds. Along with great deals of geese the areas host big groups of Starlings, yeast infections and also Lapwings and also along the shore there were lots of ducks consisting of a significant group of 2000 Wigeon. Checking this group wishing to locate American Wigeon disclosed an exceptionally clever Gadwall x Mallard crossbreed. It was not a selection of this really variable hybird that I have actually seen photos of prior to yet I believe the parentage needs to be.

I am creating this on the airplane house on my phone and also I see that the photos have actually been submitted in an extremely arbitrary order so please forgive me.
