Yesterday I went looking for the hard stuff: Hawk Owl (haukugle) and Great Grey Owl (lappugle) in Nesodden but without luck. A Great Grey Shrike (varsler) was the best I could turn up.
I was getting a bit worried that Hawk Owls have moved on as there seemed to be a marked reduction in the number of records around Oslo last week but it was good to see that there were three separate birds reported today. I think that birds have just been searching out new hunting grounds as a bird that stays loyal to the same spot for anything over a week must make a serious dent in the local rodent population and it will be a matter of time before it is time to fly to pastures new.
