Skogsøy 31 May 2006

The final day! Strong north westerly winds continue; not surprisingly a similar range of species to yesterday but 255 Northern Fulmar havhest is the most I've had at Skogsøy. Also six Pomarine Skuas polarjo, 20 Arctic Skua tyvjo and a bunch more of unidentified (but probably Arctic). Ringed Plover sandlo, Red Knot polarsnipe and Whimbrel småspove among the waders seen heading north, along with a couple of unidentified stints (probably Temminck's)

Small numbers of Brents ringgås passing, but when I returned home I received a test message to let me know they will be passing in large numbers later this afternoon / evening...

During the course of the last 2 1/2 months over 60000 birds have been logged!
