Curlew Sandpiper, Herdlevær
Curlew Sandpiper at Herdlevær, Øygarden, 30 August 2011

Curlew Sandpiper can be a hard bird to see in Øygarden and are usually seen flying past on migration. Occasionally birds land at Tjeldstø to feed on freshwater pools, or, like the bird pictured, along the coast. This bird was not seen on the shore but immediately inland where it foraged in freshwater pools and in cracks in the rocks.
