Some days are better than others. Today was one of them.
In the afternoon I heard a familiar sound outside my window. A Yellow-browed Warbler was continously calling during its half hour stay in my garden. However, it did not expose itself too much, hence the poor photo quality. Listen to the bird call in the player below (recorded with the mobile phone).
Yesterday produced another rarity. A totally unexpected Silvery Arches Polia hepatica (picture above) sat waiting for me in the mothtrap. There are only two undated records from Bergen municipality, both probably around 1960-1970. This record actually became the latest ever in Norway, beating the old date with a month! The species normally fly in June and July.
