who became the third species in 3 days to sing to me! Sat under the old gnarled birch tree in the garden having breakfast this morning and I was joined by this chaffinch (bokfink) :)
A chaffinch (bokfink) in full song this beautiful morning. This is the normal time for chaffinches to return here, although a small number do overwinter. I also heard a short snatch of chiffchaff (gransanger) song on Saturday, earlier than normal.
Marsh tit (løvmeis)
Yellowhammers (gulspurv), part of a flock of 11 birds with a brambling (bjørkefink)
Hawfinch (kjernebiter) with nuthatch (spettmeis) at the end!
Bird diversity in snow
Fieldfare (gråtrost) in snow
On the way to work this morning my first singing Icterine warbler / gulsanger of 2016 at Leangenbukta. The warbler is heard at the beginning with a chaffinch/ bokfink and is then swamped by a singing redwing / rødvingetrost with a willow warbler/løvsanger and blackcap /munk in the mix too.
