I have not been good enough to follow up the blog the last days, but I will try to remember it the next days.
A Long-tailed Skua (Fjelljo) made the 7th a special day, since I dont get to see these every day up here.
On the 12th I found a Red Phalarope (Polarsvømmenipe) male, wich was running around with a chick. I was hoping to ring the chick, but it disappeared in the grass and was never seen again.
On the 13th I got hand on two Dunlin (Myrsnipe) chicks. These were equipped with metal-rings and orange plastic-flags. Hopefully they will be seen in their wintering-quarters when the season is over up North.
On the 21st I finally got some photos of a bird that I have wanted to get photos for quite a while. One of the white Barnacle Geese (Hvitkinngås). It lay in between about thirty of its fellows in a moulting-flock. On Isdammen now there are several hundreds of them, and in between there are a few Pink.footed Geese (Kortnebbgås).
