Bean Geese back

A check of the WWT Bean Goose satellite tracking website shows that the first marked bird made the journey from Denmark to Akershus yesterday seemingly flying in a direct straight line and arriving in the evening.
Hopefully some birders can get out to the staging sight at Horgen and Udenes Kirke to count the birds and see if they can read any neck rings.

I am still in the UK and had the pleasure of the rooftop breeding pair of Peregrines in Brighton yesterday - it would be great if the Oslo wintering birds stayed on to breed like this pair.

In Haywards Heath, my childhood home, I have also just seen a pair of Peregrines hunting over the houses - something that would not have been imagineable in my childhood.
