Gannets havsule at Skogsøy

Started the day at Skogsøy where, as usual, there was plenty to see. Raptors seen were a Peregrine vandrefalk, a Merlin dvergfalk and superb views of a Goshawk hønsehauk.

Migration was relatively quiet but included seven Red-throated Diver smålom, a Black Guillemot teist, at least six Sanderling sandløper and a couple of Ruddy Turnstone steinvender. Plenty of Gannets havsule passing too.
At Herdlevær a couple of Spotted Flycatcher gråfluesnapper and a Pied Flycatcher svarthvitfluesnapper may have been the same birds seen on previous vistits.

At Sæle there were more flycatchers and a Whinchat buskskvett.
