I finally located the Twite (bergirisk) at Fornebu today although I managed no good pictures as I had hoped. They suddenly arrived in flight whilst I was there, landed and ate for a couple of minutes and then were gone again leaving me with a few distant flight shots and one shot of a perched bird where it is looking away from me.
|part of the flock - I counted 33 in total|
At Furst Brygge there are now 27 Oystercatcher (tjeld) and on a small patch of snow free grass by offices on Fornebu 12 Greylag Geese (grågås) were trying to find some sustenance.
Earlier I had visited Kadettangen in Sandvika again hoping to have another encounter with the Smew but she was not there today. I had to amuse myself with some pictures of feeding Mallards and Mute Swans.
|The Mallards were very hungry and old crusts were fought over|
|The Mute Swans were equally hungry but were a little more restained (classy). Note the orange bill of an adult bill and the paler, pinker bills of younger birds (3 cy)|
