Skogsøy 14 April 2009

Male Long-tailed Duck havelle
Male Wheatear steinskvett at Kollsnes

Cormorant storskarv
A late and lazy seawatch was too late to catch the early morning movement but had 19 Red-throated Diver smålom in a couple of hours seawatching. A Shelduck gravand and small numbers of Common Scoter svartand and Cormorant storskarv also on the move.
Highlight was a second year Glaucous Gull polarmåke feeding with other gulls offshore.

A few Twite bergirisk and a host of other migrants seen and heard on the way out.

A male Wheatear steinskvett at Kollsnes and another heard singing from my garden were signs of new arrivals.
