Skogsøy 11 May 2007

Great Black-backed Gull svartbak
Northern Gannet havsule

Over 150 Red-throated Diver smålom, a Great Northern Diver islom and a White-billed Diver gulnebblom all headed north, as did three Arctic Skua tyvjo. Two small flocks of Barncale Geese hvitkingås gave hope of a "big day" but this failed to develop. Little else moving over the sea, just some small flocks of distant terns.

Once again a White-billed Diver sat on the sea around dawn but soon disappeared.

Bird of the day was a Rook kornkråke that seemed to come in off the sea around dawn.
