Skogsøy 29 March 2006
Wet and grey again, but far from dead. Four new species for the spring migration count: a Glaucous Gull polarmåke, Eurasian Wigeon brunnakke, Mallard stokkand and Dunlin myrsnipe. The Glaucous Gull, a 3 cy bird, came past at around 10m distance - just as I'd poured a cup of tea, otherwise I may not have noticed it.....
Superb views of Peregrine vandrefalk and White-tailed Eagle havørn within metres of my lookout.
Obviously a lot going on with mass arrivals of passerines all over Øygarden - flocks all over the place but I didn't manage to get out and check.....
