Skogsøy 14 June 2009 - quality!

Pale phase Pomarine Skua polarjo
Dark phase Pomarine Skua polarjo

Crested Tit toppmeis

A few hours seawatching in calm conditions around dawn were quite productive - typically for mid June it was quality rather than quantity. Higlights were the first Long-tailed Skua fjelljo of the spring, three Pomarine Skua polarjo and an adult White-billed Diver gulnebblom.
The supporting cast included a couple of Arctic Skua tyvjo, 11 Red-throated Diver smålom and double figure numbers of both Fulmar havhest and Puffin lunde. A passing Dunlin myrsnipe was the first I've had in Øygarden this year (late!).
On land just the usual suspects including the singing Lesser Whitethroat møller.
