Skogsøy 09 September

Gannets havsule

Great Skua storjo with rather pale undersides

With 25 knots WSW hopes were typically high for a rather late spell of seawatching.
It seemed passage was dropping off even as I arrived but managed to get a single Manx Shearwater havlire heading south along with 41 Fulmar havhest and over 100 Gannets havsule. Several Red-throated Diver smålom, a few Bar-tailed Godwit lappspove, a lone Kittiwake krykkje and three Great Skua storjo were the best of the rest.
A Rook kornkråke by the car park was a surprise find (only the second in Øygarden this year so far).
