Ton up

Another Norwegian tick and 3 year ticks today (bringing the year list to a round 100) as I took the kids for a walk around Fornebu.

First bird we saw was a Wheatear (year tick), followed by some Skylarks and then 2 Woodlarks (Norwegian tick) flew past calling, there smaller size very obvious. They continued flying north out of site so were obviously migrants. A calling Meadow Pipit was the third year tick. Otherwise a Kestrel, a Goshawk and a couple of Twite were the only birds of note on a very quite day with no viz. mig. The cloud level was quite high and the sun popped through occasionally but the north easterly wind was probably a dampener.
