Skogsøy 13 April 2010

Obligatory Gannet havsule shot
Another of the usual Skogsøy suspects - Crested Tit toppmeis

Brisk northerly wind and a late and lazy start meant that this was never going to be a big day.

Several Kittiwake heading north along with the usual suspects such as Common Scoter svartand and Velvet Scoter sjøorre. Main interest today was the obvious increase in the passage of Red-throated Diver smålom - some 33 passed in the couple of hours spent seawatching. A single Black-throated Diver storlom was the best sighting.

A male Black Grouse orrfugl was an unusual sighting at Skogsøy -normally this species is seen at other localities. A singing Chiff-chaff gransanger was the first at Skogsøy this year.
