Skogsøy 26 February 2009 - more spring!

Greenland Whitefront tundragås at Breivik
Oiled Herring Gull gråmåke

Oiled Gannet havsule (at least 1km away!)

The first day with any movement worth mentioning this year. A total of nine Oystercatcher tjeld headed north as did at least 20 Gannets havsule. Both were typical late February numbers.
Disturbingly an oiled Herring Gull gråmåke and an oiled Gannet havsule were among the birds seen. Obvious that there has been some kind of oil spill during the last few days...

The Whitefront tundragås remoans at Breivik and is now starting to aquire its "white front".
