Øygarden 19 May 2006

A very wet day with more or less incessant rain. Skogsøy was therefore predictably quiet, although a 2cy White-billed Diver gulnebblom headed south just before 0600. Otherwise just a few Great Skua storjo and a couple of Arctic Skua tyvjo passing by.

At Tjeldstø all three hirundines were feeding over Husvatnet, the Sand Martin sandsvale and House Martins taksvale are undoubtedly migrants as they do not breed in the vicinity. A pair of Tufted Duck toppand were incredibly the first I've seen at Tjeldstø this year!
