Skogsøy 27 February 2010

Somewhat extreme conditions today. Slogged through knee deep snow (deeper in drifts) in a northerly gale to see if there was anything going on. Sure enough, the first movement of any note this year was ongoing - over 200 Gannets havsule heading north in an hours and a half.

Pitifully little else, just a few Kittiwake krykkje and a light passage of large gulls also heading north.

Out of the wind in the woods it felt a lot more spring-like with Coal tit svartmeis and Crested Tits toppmeis singing.

A Carrion Crow svartkråke fed among the sheep just over the road from the parking area.
