Skogsøy 30 Dec 2005

Day one of the three day New Year Bird Race:

Technically the best bird was a Carrion Crow (svartkråke) at Herdlevær but to me two Great Northern Diver (islom) together on the sea were far better, not to mention good views of at least two White-tailed Eagle (havørn).

Managed to take pictures of varying quality of some of the species.
