Skogsøy 04 May 2006

Summer plumaged Grey Plover tundralo, Husvatnet, Tjeldstø
Common (Mew) Gull, fiskemåke, Tjeldstø

Calm and very warm at Skogsøy. A fairly steady stream of birds today including small numbers of Whimbrel småspove, several Arctic Skua (only one pale phase) tyvjo and 30 Velvet Scoter sjøorre. Best birds were a pair of Northern Shoveler skjeand and a 2cy Black-throated Diver storlom heading north.
An evening stroll down to the lake outside my house at Tjeldstø produced two excellent birds: a summer plumaged Grey Plover tundralo and a Wood Sandpiper grønstilk which even gave a display flight and song!
