Skogsøy 13 May 2011

Light southerlies and rain showers

Another rather quiet day, although a Turnstone steinvender flying past the lookout,  a singing Lesser Whitethroat møller and a Carrion Crow svartkråke were all new for the year.

Other stuff was limited to a late flock of at least 15 Purple Sandpiper fjæreplytt and small numbers of Common Scoter svartand on the move.

The most uninspiring of local rarities - a Carrion Crow svartkråke.
Perhaps this bird is part of the movement that deposited large numbers of this species on Fair Isle a couple of days back?

Seabirds were limited to a couple of Razorbill alke, several Gannets havsule and a lone Kittiwake krykkje.
