Skogsøy 24 March 2009
Raven ravn with sheeps wool for its nest.
A late start meant that I probably missed most of the migration. However, I did get the one species I'd hoped for - a nortbound Shelduck gravand. Small numbers of Curlew storspove and over 100 Common Gulls fiskemåke also on the move. Gannets havsule were obvious too with at least 40 moving north along with a few Red-throated Diver smålom.
The Ravens ravn were busy with their nest and with the Rock Pipits skjærpiplerke singing it certainly felt very springlike.
