|Cuckoo in the mountains near Beitostølen where the species seems to still be doing well|
|male Lapland Bunting near Beitostølen|
|male Bluethroat onSaltfjellet|
|There were a number of territorial Long-tailed Skuas on Saltfjellet which allowed close approach although yet you know when it was close enough|
This summer saw me find my rarest bird to date with a male White-winged/Stejnegers Scoter close to our cabin near Bodø. This was only the third Norwegian record (only one of the others has been accepted so far) and was twitched from across the country.
|I had few encounters with Red-backed Shrikes in the breeding season but in August there were lots of youngsters to see both at Maridalen and Fornebu|
|The poor summer hit warblers exceptionally hard and they were hardly to see on autumn migrations although this Willow Warbler did pose well|
