Extremely difficult conditions today with a southerly gale whipping up salt spray which coated lenses and everything else too....
A few hours in the middle of the day produced 5 Red-throated Diver smålom heading south, a Great Skua storjo, two hrota (Pale-bellied) Brent Geese ringgås, a couple of Northern Fulmar havhest and about 40 Gannets havsule.
The only passeriens of interest were some Willow Tit granmeis - not a common species at Skogsøy and the first I have seen there for at least a couple of years....these birds are obviously on the move.
The best birds were probably two that got away - a99% certain Sabine's Gull and an interesting dark tern.
