Skogsøy 19 February 2012

Strong northerly gale and snow showers.

Hardly pleasant conditions but an hours seawatching was well worth the walk - with a decent movement of birds heading north.

All but one of the Kittiwakes krykkje today were adults like these

In all 22 Gannets havsule, 33 Kittiwake krykkje, 10 Guillemots lomvi (first of the year) and four Razorbill alke headed north.

On the way back to the car a flock of 10 Fieldfare gråtrost flew over - the biggest flock I have seen thus far in 2012.
