I paid a visit to the Tuentangen area of Nordre Øyeren this morning to see if I could relocate an interesting ringtail harrier (ubestemt kjerrehauk) which was photographed there on Saturday. I failed on that score with a Buzzard (musvåk) being the only raptor I saw. There were a few ducks and waders in the area including a late Little Ringed Plover (dverglo) which was keeping company with 4 Ringed Plovers (sandlo). This species is normally long gone by the end of August so this is an interesting record. At nearby Merkja a male Gadwall (snadderand) and female Shoveler (skjeand) were both good Akershus birds and on the way home I sinned and dosed up on plastic.
