OSLO BIRDER: Taiga Beans hosting once again

I am uncertain regarding whether I will certainly have the ability to most likely to
Værøy this year (my last journey remained in 2019 and also is seeming like a life time ago).
When Halvard H asked if I desired to join him on a lengthy weekend break journey to the.
Bird Observatory at Shop Færder after that I leapt at the opportunity. The observatory.
gets on an island in the Oslo arm and also has actually existed given that 1973 and also this will certainly be.
my initial see and also one I am extremely eagerly anticipating– we leave from Oslo in a hrs’.

Right Here is a web link to the web site for the Obs (in Norwegian).

The Other Day, I was rather mobile and also initial paid a check out.
to the Taiga Bean Geese. There is just one general practitioner tracker still servicing the.
birds that utilize the Akershus movement course and also it had actually shown up on the 27 th

I discovered the geese rather quickly on a favoured area.
They were currently in trip when I saw them. I recognized where they would certainly be.
heading and also 20 mins later on had the ability to situate them on a peat bog however where it.
is difficult to obtain close without terrifying them so I was not exactly sure that I would certainly.
have the ability to review off any type of rings/collars. For me though a young.
and also silly Peregrine made a decision to attempt its good luck (unsuccessfully obviously) and also.
place all the geese up airborne. They flew extremely near to me permitting me to fire.
off great deals of pictures. From these I have actually determined 4 marked birds. One is the GPS.
bird (# 27), one more had a neck collar revealing 6U and also this is among the.
initial birds that was captured in Oct 2011 in Scotland! 2 various other birds had leg.
rings just (having actually shed their neck collars and also I am awaiting the men in.
Scotland to see if it is feasible to ID them). There were specifically 120 birds and also.

123 have actually been seen in the southerly Swedish hosting website

so if this is the overall.
number this fall after that it appears on the reduced side.

I have not yet took a look at my pictures to see if any type of household.
teams can be determined (and also I have to confess to not locating it simple to age these.
geese) however possibly another person around can construct something from my pictures.

Hereafter I drove to Hellesjøvannet wishing for even more.
raptor activity. It was not as interesting as recently however I did have 7 types consisting of.
3 not seen the previous week (when I amounted to 8 types): Kestrel, Merlin and also.
Peregrine. Remarkably I had no discoveries of either Osprey or Honey Buzzard recommending.
all neighborhood dog breeders have actually currently left. The neighborhood Marsh Harriers were still about.
believed with 2 loud young.
