Bits and Bobs
The inner Oslo fjord is now completely frozen over with the ice extending further down the fjord than I can previously remember seeing. This has obviously forced a lot of birds further south but the gulls are still around and I saw the Glaucous Gull again although at a range of around 500m through the scope. I saw the bird from the quay side under the Akershus Festning castle. Also the Peregrine was on the church in central Oslo today serenely surveying the numerous feral pigeons in the area deciding which one would be its dinner.
