Øygarden 13 May 2007

A big day at Skogsøy - which I managed to miss - almost 300 Red-throated Diver smålom, White-billed Diver gulnebblom, small numbers of both Pomarine Skua polarjo and Arctic Skua tyvjo along with single Great Skua storjo and a small flock of Barnacles kept observers busy until around 13:00. A Carrion Crow svartkråke and a Common Whitethroat tornsanger were reported from Herdlevær.

A similar selection of species were seen from Svellingen where three Red-necked Grebe gråstrupedykker were also seen.

At Tjeldstø I heard the first Cuckoo gjøk of the year, the Sedge Warblers sivsanger were still singing and a few Common Terns makrellterne also arrived.
