Skogsøy 15 November 2008

Very difficult conditions for both birds and observer today in gale force westerlies. But it had to be done.
Not that much passing and during an hours seawatching 26 Little Auk alkekonge and 12 Kittiwake krykkje were just about all that went past. A Peregrine vandrefalk also flew past - no doubt also on the lookout for Little Auks.
At Tjeldstø the five Whitefronts tundragås were back again after yesterday's absence.
