Skogsøy 28 June 2006

Redwing rødvingtrost
Lesser Redpoll brunsisik
Northern Gannets havsule (no tele lens)

Finally made it back out to Skogsøy if only for a short seawatch. Light northerly winds and calm conditions but well worth the trip. Largley the typical late June species including a few Arctic Skua tyvjo, a Great Skua storjo, Northern Gannets havsule, Northern Fulmar havhest, Atlantic Puffins lunde and Common Scoter svartand. A southbound Whimbrel småspove or two were the first of the "autumn".

Best bird was a 2 c.y. Great Northern Diver islom on the sea in front of the lookout point.

The woods were full of the usual suspects - including Redwing rødvingtrost, Crested Tit toppmeis and Lesser Redpoll brunsisik.
