More pictures from today can be found here.
The species most affected is the Long-tailed Duck havelle with approximately 20 oiled individuals at Svelingen alone. Plenty of Eiders ærfugl are also stricken by the spill - over 25% of those I saw near Hjelme church were oiled to some degree. On the offshore islands birds are distant and hard to observe but judging by behaviour there are many more affected than the "few" I saw. Here is one female eider that will not be lining her nest with down plucked from her own chest this year:

Once again not much evidence of the authorities in the places I visited today....they are no doubt prioritising areas that are stricken even more badly.
A single Northern Gannet havsule was the 15th species to be affected by this disaster.
The only other bird of note was a Kestrel tårnfalk near Svellingen.
