Hjelme Vest 04 March 2008

Common Scoter svartand
Herring Gull gråmåke
Winter seas
Goldeneye kvinand

Winter returned with a bang today. A north westerly gale and snow showers meant that conditions were far from easy. A trip to "Hjelme Vest" produced an adult Glaucous Gull polarmåke heading north and little on the sea other than eight Common Scoter svartand and a Black Guillemot teist. A few Gannets havsule did battle with the elements offshore
An Oystercatcher tjeld and 10 Purple Sandpipers fjæreplytt also present.
