Alvheim 25 February 2008

2cy Glaucous Gull polarmåke (above and below)

2cy Iceland Gull grønlandsmåke (ISO 800)
Immature White-tailed Eagle havørn

A superb day, despite several heavy showers. A concentration of gulls around a herring holding pen provided most of the interest with a second year Iceland Gull grønlandsmåke and a second year Glaucous Gull polarmåke present. A few dead gulls in the area proved that the three immature White-tailed Eagles havørn have also been making the most of this gull flock.

Another bird of note was a female Black Grouse orrfugl.
