A Water Rail sang from the reedbed but despite being close by remained invisible and a White-fronted Goose (tundrågås) that has been around for a week showed well with Greylags although was clearly more wary than them. The small amount of white around the bill and black belly bars suggest this is the same bird as at Bygdøy and probably a 3rd cy.
Despite my disappointment at Fornebu I continued into Maridalen still with high hopes – I was thinking Golden Plovers and various other waders and ducks. Pairs of Common Scoter (svartand) and Tufted Duck (toppand) on the lake plus a flyover Merlin were all that I could must up though.
