Øygarden 15 March 2006

Lapwing vipe at Breivik

The big day finally arrived - the start of the seawatching season at Skogsøy. Fantastic weather, although bitterly cold around dawn - some spilt tea froze almost instantly....only 77 days left!

The count details are presented here.

At Skogsøy a Peregrine vandrefalk sat on its lookout almost as long as I did.....

A "drive by" at Breivik revealled some new arrivals feeding on the still fozen fields - 20 Fieldfare gråtrost, 10 Redwing rødvingtrost, 10 Starling stær and two Northern Lapwing vipe.
