BIRD GUIDING AROUND OSLO

What's about?

If you had asked me "what's about" then I'd have said "not much old chap". But despite that I had three 3 year ticks taking my Norwegian year list to 84.

A Robin in the garden was number 1 and then a short trip upto to Maridalen added Whooper Swans 2 of which were sitting on the ice and another flying south and 2 Linnets feeding on seed heads showing above the snow. Little else to see: small numbers of Wood Pigeons and Chaffinches flying north but also a migrating flock of 13Jackdaws. A fine adult males Goshawk flew around the area before stooping behind some trees and not reappearing.
