Skogsøy 06 May 2006

Commonly used in Finland - a binocular support can stop cramping arms.....
Deer seen by the roadside around dawn (0500)

Wind continues from the south east so correspondingly little to be seen. As always though there was something of interest - today the best bird was a Short-eared Owl jordugle coming in off the sea. Even better was the fact that it snatched a passerine out of the sky and ate it as it flew past the lookout - wicked!

Other birds included small numbers of migrating Tufted Duck toppand, around 15 Arctic Tern rødnebbterne - the first of the year at Skogsøy along with both Great storjo and Arctic Skuas tyvjo.
