limosa Black-tailed Godwit svarthalespove at Tjeldstø

A superb day at Skogsøy, with a total of 10 Pomarine Skua polarjo, some of these stunning birds came by very close - if only I had a "proper" camera! A couple of White-billed Diver gulnebblom, a decent passage of Long-tailed Duck havelle and a few small flocks of Barnacle Geese hvitkingås were also worth a mention.

A quick check of Husvatnet at Tjeldstø produced a spendid Black-tailed Godwit (limosa) svarthalespove which I managed to snap a couple of record shots of. Three good birds on the last four times I looked at the place!

A Merlin dvergfalk was also reported from Tjeldstø and three Scaup bergand past Svellingen.
