Skogsøy 08 Febraury 2010

Record shots of the Red-necked Grebe gråstrupedykker at Skogsøy

A Red-necked Grebe gråstrupedykker was pretty much the first bird seen - and the best.

No sign of the Smew lappfiskand today and only a few Whoopers sangsvane remain.

Very little movement over the sea, just several Gannet havsule, a couple of Little Auk alkekonge, a Guillemot lomvi and a light passage of large gulls heading north. Highlight here was a Peregrine vandrefalk which typically headed a long way out to sea at great height - presumably to hunt auks.

A Rock pipit skjærpiplerke was the first I've had at Skogsøy this year.
