Whilst out here I received a message from Kjetil J that there were Bearded Tits at Fornebu. I think I had already given up on the turning up this year but this was good news. By the time I got to Fornebu later in the day there was not sight nor sound of them but there is a good chance that they are still in the area and will soon settle down in Koksa which has always been the preferred area for them.
In Maridalen the Great Grey Shrike revealed itself for the third day on the trot and seems to have found a good source of food. The Whooper Swan family is still present and feeding on the field by their nesting site.
Waxwings and Bullfinches were common through the day although failed to be photogenic. Most of the Bullfinches were giving trumpet calls (aswell as normal calls) but I fail to see any plumage or size differences.
