In an hour I did see a single Kittiwake, 2 Little Auks, single Guillemot and Razorbill, 2 Velvet Scoter, 12 Common Scoter and 16 Red-breasted Mergansers plus a seal so it wasn't a complete waste of time. Also a Hawfinch in trees behind the beach, a Snow Bunting heard going over and a flock of 4 Blue Tits that gave every impression of being on southward migration.
Having come this far and it still being early I decided to head for Kurefjorden where the calm conditions would hopefully allow me to pick up any rare ducks/grebes that may be there. Well, 14 Slavonian Grebes was a very notable sighting and is many years since I have seen so many (and also seen them in winter plumage which was the norm back in Sussex). Here you can see three of them (at some distance):
Continuing to Ovenbukta, a huge female Goshawk seemed to have a go for a Greylag Goose before thinking better of it. a flock of 30 Grelylag Geese here will soon be going south but a group of 3 Grelyag and a single Barnacle Goose hanging out on an island all looked to be injured and will presumably try to overwinter. 80 Goldeneyes and 40 R-b Merganser were feeding in the bay here but nothing more exciting. 3 Marsh Tits were in the bushes.
Popping in at Brentetangen there were no seabirds to be seen here but Crested Tits and Goldcrest were in the trees. This Goldcrest nearly resulted in a great photo (just try to imagine that the bird in as good focus as the pine needles)
