Considering that my last blog post I have actually invested a great deal of time
trying to find raptors. The target has actually been Pallid Harrier and/or Red-footed
Falcon. Pallids are currently relocating via southerly Norway with ringed birds from
Finland being seen and also the Red-foots have actually been seen in great deals around the
Baltic and also must additionally show up in Norway.

I focused my initiatives on Nordre Øyeren and also was
there Wednesday, Thursday and also Friday. Over the 3 days I kept in mind 12 varieties
None of the rarities I was really hoping for however numerous Chicken Harriers,
White-tailed Eagles and also Honey Buzzard provided some high quality. The various other varieties I.
saw were Marsh Harrier, Osprey, Buzzard, Goshawk, Sparrowhawk, Merlin,.
Peregrine, Kestrel and also Pastime.

Great White Egret, Black-tailed Godwit, Sanderling,.
Curlew Sandpiper, Little Job and also a listened to just Red-throated Pipit created.
really pleasurable birding.

On Saturday information damaged of a juv Red-footed Falcon an.
hr from Oslo and also on Sunday mid-day I needed to go down Jr Jr off someplace that.
was virtually half means there so I determined to continue. The bird had actually seen.
throughout the early morning however appeared to have vanished a hr prior to I showed up.
and also there were a couple of birders looking forlornly whatsoever the overhanging cords in the.
location when I showed up. Nearly the very first bird I saw leaving the auto was a.
Red Kite though to make sure that was a great begin! It was far-off however excellent to have just.
my 5th discovery of this varieties in Norway although it has actually begun reproducing.
currently and also will most likely come to be citizen and also citizen. The falcon was not to be.
located though and also gradually the various other birders vanished and also I determined to drive.
around the location. I understood that the falcon had actually been seen along with a Cuckoo.
and also when I located a Cuckoo on cords I obtained really ecstatic however in spite of much.
browsing could not discover its friend. I went back to where I had actually seen the Kite.
and also kept in mind Marsh Harrier, Kestrel, Pastime, Sparrowhawk plus lots of Buzzards.
Ultimately It was time to begin heading residence and also I had a selection of 2.
instructions. As the fuel light had actually begun I determined to take the path which.
would certainly take me quickest to a gasoline terminal and also what an arbitrary selection that.
was! It took me past where I had actually previously seen the Cuckoo and also certainly it was.
there and afterwards unexpectedly it had a buddy!! I reached see them both extremely well.
on roadside cords. They both often gone down to the ground (a stubble area).
prior to flying back up with a big caterpillar and also the falcon additionally took dragonflies.
I produced the information and also a few of the birders I had actually seen previously were still in the.
location and also reached see it.
