Skogsøy 21 March 2006. Smoke break birding.

I have written about the advantages of smoking and birding earlier - for example in California. There are however, certain disadvantages, especially whilst seawatching. Attention can be diverted whilst smokes and lighter are located and the lighter made to work in high winds. Today there was no smoking during the seawatch - this may have helped pick up the first of the two Great Northern Divers islom today. It passed during a lull in a snow storm - I have often either eaten or smoked during these squalls....

Otherwise the first Black-headed Gull hettemåke of the spring headed north today.
