Only the most experienced managed all 96 species.

Good telescopes were available - guaranteed to lift the experience especially for looking at birds from a distance.

About 200-300 visitors came to Lista Bird Observatory last Sunday to participate in the open day. Together with the local division of the Norwegian Ornithological Society, we organized this event to mark the autumn migration of birds and EuroBirdwatch 2011. Bird ringing was demonstrated, we had a bird quiz and invited visitors to do bird watching together with knowledgeable ornithologists.

By M. Wold
The most popular activity of the day was to watch birds being examined and ringed in the ringing room. At this time of the year there are many tits around, and there were plenty of blue tits, great tits and coal tits to be seen. Many also appreciated seeing a more rare species like barred warbler close up.

Despite the fog laying over Lista this day, as many as 96 different bird species were observed in the Lighthouse area. Visitors also got to observe birds through powerful telescopes, particularly a gyrfalcon sitting on a pole in Sevika.

We made waffles and served coffee and hot chocolate - which went down well in the chilly October air.

Natur og Fritid AS donated prizes for the winners of the bird quiz, and we are also grateful to Lista Fyr DA for providing the waffel mixture.

NOF Lista and Lista Bird Observatory thank visitors and volunteers, and hope to welcome everyone back again in the spring.
