Skogsøy 26 March 2007

Juvenile White-tailed Eagle (ringed) circling over my house this afternoon
Northbound Cormorant storskarv

Calm and sunny again - wonderful. However, a bit on the quiet side migration wise, with just a light passage of Oystercatcher tjeld, Cormorant storskarv and Greylag Geese grågås.

Highlights were a Peregrine vandrefalk, four Shelduck gravand, a lone Red-throated Diver smålom and a couple of Black-headed Gulls hettemåke.

The most remarkable observation was a flock of approximately 30 Raven ravn flying north over the lookout - the largest flock I've ever seen in Øygarden. Watched some gulls catching herring from a "holding pen" full of herring - despite masses of fish the gulls were surprisingly cautious.
