The only birds that I could truly say were migrating in 2 hours of sea gazing were a single Red-throated Diver (smålom) and 2 Common Terns (Makrellterne). I did have 5 divers that were disturbed by a boat and took to the air at great range but try as I might I couldn’t turn them into anything over than diver sp. (although I’m sure others could....).
Trying to salvage something from the day I thought I would stop in at Østensjøvannet and take some equally good photos of the scarce ducks that others have taken over the last few days. Well I only managed to find the Pochard (taffeland) pair and they were a bit distant but I did manage some pictures at least. Maridalen at 1pm was a very hot place with few birds to note. I hope spring is not over
