Skogsøy 20 May 2006

Orcas passing Skogsøy today

An excellent day, although numbers were low the quality was good. Best bird was the first Long-tailed Skua fjelljo of the year passing north at close range. Other stuff included a single White-billed Diver gulnebblom and a couple of Pomarine Skua polarjo. All four skua in a day is not a common occurrence!

However, there was a lot more than birds today. In addition to the usual Porpoises nise a few family parties of Orca spekkhoggere passed through - a fantastic sight and infruriatingly difficult to photograph with "digiscoping" gear....I gave up in the end and enjoyed watching them instead.
