Skogsøy 01 June 2008

Above and below: Arctic Skua tyvjo

Eight Brent Geese ringgås and one Barnacle Goose hvitkingås (left hand bird)
Velvet Scoters sjøorre
Very calm conditions today. Highlight was a single Manx Shearwater havlire heading south. Next best were small numbers of Brent Geese ringgås and a lone Barnacle Goose hvitkingås. Some migration still going on with just under 40 Red-throated Diver smålom heading north along with a few Arctic Skua tyvjo, Common Scoter svartand, Velvet Scoter sjøorre and a couple of Whimbrel småspove.
A Reed Warbler rørsanger sang at Breivik along with at least two Sedge Warlbers sivsanger.
