Herdlevær 23 November 2011

Southerly gale and very dull. Rain from around 10:30 onwards.

 Wish I could say this arty speed effect was deliberate - three Little Auks alkekonge passing.

 Cormorant storskarv
Three Bean Geese sædgås

Very much the usual suspects - the strong winds slowed down any passage considerably. About 20 Little Auk alkekonge heading south, several Rock Pipits skjærpiplerke and five late Lapwings vipe were the pick of the sightings.

The goose flock was still present at Breivik - today there were still eight Whitefronts tundragås, three Bean Geese sædgås and 26 Greylags grågås. At least four Woodpigeon ringdue fed in the fields with the geese.
