Øygarden 04 July 2006 Red-backed Shrike

An early morning seawatch at Skogsøy produced the usual selection of species, although there were few auks and no Northern Fulmar havhest. Over 120 Northern Gannet havsule headed north as did a lone Red-throated Diver smålom and four of the six Great Skua storjo. Whimbrel småspove on the move again and some indication that Great Black-backed Gulls svartbak have also started moving south.

A quick check at Herdlevær gave the best bird of the day in the form of a female Red-backed Shrike tornskate.

Sedge Warbler sivsanger still singing at Breivik.
