Great Black-backed Gull svartbak illustrating one of the principal laws of bird photography:

If its in focus then the wing tip will be clipped.

2 cy Iceland Gull grønlandsmåkeas it flew past my house this afternoon

Started the day at Skogsøy. Little in the way of migration although the first Lesser Black-backed Gulls sildemåke of the year turned up and a Great Northern Diver islom flew north, as did four Red-throated Diver smålom.

Otherwise a couple of Peregrine vandrefalk and most of the usual suspects.

Back at the house the long staying Iceland Gull grønlandsmåke gave a brief photo opportunity.
