At Breivik the flock of 36 Greylags grågås were still present and two Starling stær nearby were the first I've seen in Øygarden this year-

The Hooded Crow kråke actually managed to steal part of this fish! It pestered the otter constantly forcing it to move and expose the fish to the crow who used the opportunity to steal a beakful of fish.
A trip to Hjelme Vest was a wonderful experience, although nothing remarkable bird-wise. A Great Northern Diver islom, a Little Auk alkekonge and a Curlew storpsove were the best birds. Only 45 Long-tailed Duck havelle, a Velvet Scoter sjøorre and four Common Scoter svartand on the sea, along with at least four White-tailed Eagle havørn.

"Flock" of Curlew storspove at LyngøySpent the day out in a boat checking gull flocks; unsurprisingly no new oiled birds were seen. The majority of the victims will of course be dead by now.
It was a fantastic experience with plenty to be seen including several each of Velvet Scoter sjøorre and Black Guillemot teist. Only a few Little Auk alkekonge and no other auks at all.
Highlight was a Glaucous Gull polarmåke at Tjeldstø, quite possibly the same bird seen on the other side of the fjord at Herdla a few days ago.

Decent Cod torsk - worth not getting good pictures of the diver?
