Skogsøy 25 March 2006 - Back to earth

Dawn over the Kollsnes LNG plant

After yesterday's hectic day today came as a bit of a shock; despite almost identical weather there was a much lower level of activity today.

However, a Great Northern Diver islom on the sea, a couple of Snow Bunting snøspurv heading north, an adult White-tailed Eagle havørn right past the lookout and a few Woodcock rugde it wasn't such a bad day after all.

The best observation today wasn't birds at all but a family party of four Orcas - a male, two females and a calf. I had good views for around half an hour. At one point they panicked a Little Auk alkekonge which flew off as fast as it could.
