Despite the snow small numbers of spring migrants do seep in and today I had Oslo’s first Oystercatchers of the year with 5 at Huk. Otherwise though there was precious little to see or hear although at Fornebu some footprints in the snow may have been an early Woodcock (rugde). I did get to see and take some half decent pictures of a Bearded Tit at Fornebu which was, as always, a very pleasant encounter.
|I would have been quite happy with this picture given that they have been so difficult to see the last couple of months|
|but this bird showed a bit better|
|and then a bit better although never easy to focus with so many reeds in the way|
|and eventually showed quite well before disappearing silently into the reeds again|
