White-throated Dipper

Norway's national bird, Dipper, are a scarce autumn and winter migrant in Øygarden. They have been heard singing in March which may indicate that they also breed here from time to time. However, they are a common enough species in the Bergen area - including Gullfjell. They are also very much a feature of birding in Engerdal, Hedmark.

There are some double records here and some repeat sightings of the same individual - but this still gives a good idea of when this species turns up.
