Ice on the puddles

Another morning at Fornebu. It was down to -2C last night and there was a frost on the ground and ice on the puddles. Maybe this has given the cue to a lot of birds to head south as there were far fewer passerines evident compared to last week. Highlight was a Great Grey Shrike that disappeared as quickly as it had appeared perched on a tree top.
Only 2 Water Rails calling today - maybe they too have decided it is time to be heading south and the Scaup had gone although there were now 8 Tufted and 5 Teal present. The Black-throated Diver was also still present as were 3 Chiffchaffs.
