Red-throated Diver smålom on the sea off Skogsøy
Quietest day thus far birdwise - weatherwise it was another story with northerly winds well in excess of 30 knots (15 m/s) at times. Unbelievable that birds were passing at all. Best birds were a party of seven Bar-tailed Godwit lappspove heading north, one of which was well on the way into breeding plumage.
Other birds included a Red-throated Diver smålom on the sea - obviously not deeming it worthwhile to head north today.
