Skogsøy 07 March 2008 - finally some migration

Gannet havsule
Velvet Scoter sjøorre
Migrating Oystercatcher tjeld
Kittiwake krykkje
A couple of hours seawatching at Skogsøy proved to be quite productive with 55 Oystercatcher tjeld, 54 Gannet havsule and 45 Kittiwake krykkje heading north. A few Guillemots lomvi and a razorbill alke, both species that have been extremely scarce during the winter also flew past.
Other birds of interest included a female Sparrowhawk spurvhauk, three Curlew storspove (which may well have been new arrivals) and a couple of Velvet Scoter sjøorre.
