Glaucous gull polarmåke

A couple of hours out and about proved very productive despite strong winds and frequent showers.
Started off at Solberg where there was little on the sea other than a Great Northern Diver islom. The usual stuff including a White-tailed Eagle havørn and a Rock Pipit skjærpiplerke were also present.

Following a tip off the next stop was Dåvøy where a Glaucous Gull polarmåke and an Iceland Gull grønlandsmåke both showed well.
At Tjeldstø the Greenland Whitefront tundragås fed alongside three Greylags grågås.
