Skogsøy 03 May 2011

Obligatory White-billed Diver gulnebblom record shot
Two Whimbrel småspove

A few of the Red-throated Divers smålom

Still plenty of Long-tailed Duck havelle about

Fresh northerly and sunny

Highlights once again was the diver migration, over 100 Red-throated Diver smålom and four White-billed Diver gulnebblom heading north and a second year Great Northern Diver islom flying south.

A Kestrel tårnfalk that came in off the sea was the first for me this year in Øygarden. Other stuff included a few Whimbrel småspove passing and small numbers of Kittiwake krykkje, Velvet Scoter sjøorre, Puffin lunde and Razorbill alke.

On the land the only birds of interest were a fly over Lapland Bunting lappspurv and a singing Twite bergirisk.
