The fjord had a bit to offer. Winds are from the south and are forecast to strengthen during the night which might mean something interesting turns up tomorrow morning. Today I had 5 Guillemots flying around, 4 Common Terns (again all juveniles) and best of all an adult male Long-tailed Duck. Over the last few winters there has been a regular group of L-t Ducks in the inner Oslofjord so it will be interesting to see if this bird stays to overwinter or is just passing through.

|the bird was feeding amongst a flock of Eiders (ærfugl) and with a single Guillemot (lomvi)|
|I had a couple of Blackcaps (munk) today|
