A few hours leisurely hours at Fornebu today allowed me to take some photos including of a particularly photogenic Red-throated Diver. There were 2 of these, a Black-throated Diver and a few Guillemots, Razorbills, Cormorants and Gulls feeding quite energetically in close proximity of each other - presumably on a shoal of small fish.
Other highlights were a late Wheatear, Water Rail, the 2 Scaup still present, Sparrowhawk, Goshawk and Kestrel. Passerines were generally in very short supply with only a couple of Meadow Pipits, a Hawfinch and 6 Waxwings of note
On the fjord, a flock of 50 Common Scoter plus a Velvet Scoter which preferred to hang with the Eiders.

Tomorrows weather forecast is for strong winds in the afternoon from the SW - hopefully a few more seabirds will be pushed up the fjord.
