In addition to Maridalen I also visited Fornebu where I met up with Jules. Low cloud and the threat of snow put a real dampener on bird activity but 5 Reed Buntings made themselves known, Bearded Tits called but only from one location and the Stock Dove was sat on top of a nest box and later sang. Later on another Stock Dove flew over and the original bird flew up to meet it and then they both flew down and started feeding together – did we witness a bird arriving on its migration?
