The Botanic Gardens were next on the list and this normally reliable site for at least photographing a number of common species proved to be almost birdless with the feeders and berry trees attracting pretty much nothing.
By now the sun had come out so a repeat visit to Østensjøvannet and some new photo opportunities seemed like a good idea. This partly worked but with ever increasing areas of open water the interesting birds were also more distant. My first Oslo Goosander (laksand) of the year were the highlight.
