News from Lista Bird Observatory

Here are the latest news from Lista Bird Observatory

A good start of autumn campaign 2013 (24.07.2013)
The 24th autumn season started at Lista Bird Observatory a little over a week ago. The ringing campaign has started well, with sunny days, warm and calm weather, and many young birds around. By the 23rd of July we have ringed 421 birds og 32 species.

Vågsvollvåien, fuglekikking og ferdsel (14.06.2013)
Stasjonsområdet til Lista Fuglestasjon ligger midt i Norges kanskje mest spennende fugleområde. Lett tilgjengelighet og stor aktivitet av fuglekikkere kombinert med stor artsrikdom og svært mange sjeldenheter, gjør det ønskelig med en felles forståelse av hvordan fuglekikkere bør oppføre seg i området. Dette av hensyn til sårbart fugleliv, lokalbefolkning, landbruksnæring og ikke minst fuglekikkere og fuglestasjonens virke i området. Dette gjør at vi noen ganger ønsker å ta opp problemer i området og oppfordre til løsninger.

Young gyrfalcon wanders from Jämtland, Sweden, to Lista (06.04.2013)
It is not uncommon that a few gyrfalcons turn up at Lista during winter. But it is not very often we have information about where they come from. Recently a Swedish-ringed gyrfalcon was found at Skiphaugen near Havika. This is one of very few recoveries of this species, and shows that Swedish gyrfalcons can wander south-east in their search for prey during autumn and winter, and that they also fly relatively large distances. This individual was recovered more than 700 km away from its birth place.

Words had spread that a blue tit ringed in Norway was recaptured in Shetland on the 17th of October this year. Ringers at Lista Bird Observatory wondered if it was ringed here, which proved to be the case. The bird got ringed by Richard Cope on the 5th of October.

American golden plover (Pluvialis dominica), new species for Lista Bird Observatory (23.09.2012)
After a long period of stong westerly winds and days with numerous showers, the weather finally calmed down on September 19.-20. With just a slight breeze and sunny weather, several birders had gathered around the lighthouse area on Saturday morning. Many different bird species were recorded, but not in big numbers. It looked like it was going to be just another average day, if it wasn't for two young plovers that came flying in and landed in Vågsvollvåien at 10:42.

Spring 2012: a reunion with 8979876 and continued positive trend for chiffchaff and blackcap (02.07.2012)
A total of 1221 birds were ringed during spring season 2012, distributed over 50 different species. This is about 200 more birds compared to last spring. The number of retrapped birds amounts to 105, the majority originally ringed at Lista. We also had the joy of meeting again, for the second time, a male wheatear that was ringed at the observatory five years ago, and that now returns to Lista every spring to breed.
