BIRD GUIDING AROUND OSLO

Fornebu again

The rain continues and today it really bucketed down at times. I gave Fornebu a brief visit in a dry period in the morning and could with some pleasure note an increase in Willow Warblers – not huge numbers but over 20 at least. Otherwise birds were pretty much the same as yesterday although I counted 100 Yellow Wagtails today.

Scarcest bird was three Water Rails calling from the reedbed at Storøykilen. There have been no records here in June or July so I don’t think they bred this year and that these are most likely fresh in autumn migrants.
one of three Spotted Flycatcher (gråfluesnapper).The pale feathers show this to be a bird moulting out of juvenile and into 1st winter plumage
