Regarded as a pest by many this introduced species is thankfully a
rarity in Øygarden - although a couple of individuals
heading north past Skogsøy during the spring of 2006 seemed
very small - possibly "the real thing". Another very small bird turned
up on the sea at the most unlikely of locations during 2009. Most
records would seem to refer to either escapes (such as the April 2008
record) or the Herdla flock wandering.
