Cloudless blue skies and a fresh easterly wind meant as expected a bit of a clear out with no new arrivals except perhaps for a small increase in Redwings. My undoubted highlight was getting even better views of an adult Gyr Falcon than yesterday. It appeared to be a different, larger bird and it is unusual to see adults out on the coast. Normally young birds move to the coast whilst the adults remain close to their breeding territories. As a sign of how quiet things were the other highlights were a hybrid duck and a plastic duck. A female Pintail x Mallard hybrid was a first for me but seemed to be a quite obvious hybrid between these two species even though female hybrids are much more difficult to identify than males. The plastic duck was a male Mandarin. I could try to argue that it was shy and if a Two-barred Greenish can turn up here then surely a wild duck from China can but it has been around for ages…☺️ Today’s eBird checklist can be seen here. Tomorrow is forecast to be cloudy with possibly some drizzle which should mean new, and hopefully exciting, arrivals. Adult Gyr Falcon (jaktfalk) And the smallest falcon - a Merlin (dvergfalk) chasing a Hooded Crow Young Peregrine (vandrefalk) chasing a Ruff (brushane) Female Pintail x Mallrd hybrid (stjertand x stokkand) with a female Pintail The hybrid at the bottom with an upperwing looking very like a Pintail The head pattern, leg colour, tertials and tail resemble Mallard but the rest is more Pintail A poor photo but the green of the speculum can be seen Male Mandarin coming out of eclipse plumage Golden Plovers (heilo) here are tame and also garden birds The Taiga Bean Goose Twite (bergirisk) Snow Bunting (snøspurv) Arctic Redpoll (polarsisik)


“Today we celebrate the adoption of the largest climate bill ever passed in U.S. history, and a major step forward to a cleaner future for both people and wildlife,” said Dr. Elizabeth Gray, CEO of the National Audubon Society. “Across every kind of habitat, birds are telling us that climate change is threatening the places […]

My second day on Røst, although the first in daylight was a great success even if there was no major rarity (Norway’s second Two-barred Greenish Warbler which was found earlier in the week has unfortunately moved on now). This is actually my third visit to Røst after a summer visit in 2000 when I saw Snowy Owl and a visit in late September 2003 when I stayed for a couple of days without seeing too much (although my name is the NSKF rarities report for being a co-finder of an American Golden Plover which I remember very little about). We were 8 birders on Røst today and the nature of the island makes it much easier to cover on foot than Værøy and with far less vegetation then we should discover a far higher percentage of the birds present than on Værøy. Røst has far more wetlands than Værøy so there are many more waders and ducks but there are fewer passerines especially thrushes and finches. I have walked 28,473 steps today and am rather knackered so I will keep this brief now😊. The two highlights for me were an adult Gyr Falcon close enough for photos (all my previous sightings of Gyr have been long distance) and hearing, and of course seeing, Yellow-browed Warbler which is a very necessary part of every autumn. Other goof birds were Olive-backed Pipit, Tree Pipit (which is rarer here than OBP), Taiga Bean Goose, Arctic Redpoll and my first Black-tailed Godwit in Norland. The full eBird checklist can be seen here. Looking north with Værøy to the right and the rest of the Lofoten islands Sunrise on Røst Looking south Yellow-browed Warbler (gulbrynsanger) Adult Gyr Falcon (jaktfalk) Olive-backed Pipit (sibirpiplerke) And for comparison a Tree Pipit (trepiplerke) Black-tailed Godwit (svarthalespove) Arctic Redpoll (polarsisik) Golden Plover (heilo) Long-tailed Duck (havelle) Taiga Bean Goose - a large billed bird that may come from a long way east in Russia

Although I arrived after dark I have still had some good birding today. The 3 and a half hour ferry trip on flat seas gave me an adult White-billed Diver, 5 Storm Petrels and a Sooty Shearwater! Then once I arrived at my base (John Stenersen’s «cabin») I was straight out to look for Jack Snipe! My thermal camera worked wonders in the dark and 5 were found! We also found Common Snipe, Golden Plover and Dunlin. 4 Olive-backed Pipits were found today so my hoped for tommorrow are very high! Some pictures White-billed Diver (gulnebblom) taken from inside the ferry Then the picture quality fell - this is a Sooty Shearwater (grålire) Jack Snipe at night Værøy… Storm Petrel (havsvale…) Røst Jack Snipe photographering

I couldn’t resist trying out the thermal imager again yesterday and found no fewer than 6 different Jack Snipe and didn’t flush a single one! I am sitting on the bus to the way to the airport and my trip to Røst so my thoughts turn to different birds. I will not get there until dark this evening so will not be seeing any sibes until tomorrow but will have the ferry journey from Bodø which may give me some seabirds. here it is almost possible to identify the bird just from its thermal image 3 birds close to each other close up of back feathers can you find the Jack Snipe?

BirdLife International lanserer i dag State of the World’s Birds – en tilstandsrapport for fuglelivet på globalt nivå. Som ventet er det ikke lystig lesning. En av åtte fuglearter i verden er utrydningstruet, og de fleste bestander av arter som ikke har status som utrydningstruet er i tilbakegang. Over 180 arter har blitt utryddet de siste århundrene. Det er menneskeskapte årsaker bak nesten all elendigheten for fuglelivet, men det gjør også at vi sitter med løsningene.
