Solberg 09 August 2010 - Black-throated Diver

Part of a mixed flock of waders - largely Turnstone steinvender with a few Ruff brushane and Knot polarsnipe.

This 2cy Black-throated Diver storlom was a surprise find on the sea

Very calm and muggy.
A Black-throated Diver storlom on the sea was a surprise unseasonal find during an afternoon trip on foot.
In an evening boat trip showed that the islands off the coast were full of waders - mixed flocks passed more or less constantly. Turnstone steinvender, Red Knot polarsnipe, Ruff brushane, Ringed Plover sandlo and Dunlin myrsnipe were among the waders seen.
