Skogsøy 27 January 2010

Grey Heron gråhegre
some BIG waves today - no Purple sands feeding here under these conditions!

Small group of Whooper Swans sangsvane

Smew lappfiskand

Strong Northwesterly winds meant that there was little choice other than get out to Skogsøy. This was easier said than done - it was even more treacherous underfoot that last time.

The redhead Smew lappfiskand was still present and still associating with a flock of Goldeneye kvinand. At least 11 Whoopers sangsvane also feeding on the "lagoons".

There was some activity over the sea with at least 13 Gannets havsule - the first I've seen this year, along with four Kittiwakes krykkje, a Velvet Scoter sjøorre, a Guillemot lomvi and a Little Auk alkekonge.

Had two Little grebe dvergdykker at Herdlevær whilst I was turning my car around - didn't even do a "drive by" today.
