SKogsøy 16 May 2011 - Skuas

Light NW then light SW

Well worth the trip out today - although it was a case of quality rather than quantity. Highlights were three Long-tailed Skua fjelljo, two Pomarine Skua polarjo and a Black-throated Diver storlom. Other stuff inlcuded a couple of Arctic Skua tyvjo and 89 Red-throated Diver smålom.

One large diver was probably a White-billed Diver gulnebblom but couldn't quite rule out Great Northern islom.

A Wryneck vendehals sang several times from very close to my garden - no time to check it out more fully. Species 161 from the garden....
