Shore lark

I finally added Shore Lark to my year list with a juvenile on Valdresflya. This is the first time I have seen a bird in this plumage and it took a little time to work out what it was. Also a couple of Lapland Buntings, 2 female Scaup, a pair of Long-tailed Duck, Teal, Tufted Duck, Goldeneye, ca.20 Ringed Plover, 6 Whimbrel, 8 Redshank, 12 golden Plover. The Ringed Plover numbers are easily the highest i have seen here although i don't think many pairs had young.
At the cabin we have had Merlin, Kestrel, Snipe, Woodcock, Pied Flycatcher and Redpoll amd a walk today gave Ring Ouzel and a pair of Rough-legged Buzzard.
