Today I made a half-hearted search for Siberian Jays (lavskrike) in the spruce forest below Beitostølen. No joy today but I did hear a singing Greenshank (gluttsnipe). In the evening a brieftrip to Valdresflya revealed much more snow free ground - the thaw has really set in now and in a week or so I am sure it will look completely different. A single Dotterel (boltit), the pair of Temminck's Stints, a handful of Ringed Plovers (sandlo), a singing Shore Lark (fjellerke) were still close to the road and we had a small group of Reindeer crossing the road.
