Skogsøy 12 December 2012 - Whoopers

Light southerly winds with some light snowfall

 Some of the Whoopers sangsvane feeding in the saltwater lagoons at Skogsøy

Took a walk at Skogsøy despite not having the time to seawatch. As expected with all suitable freshwater frozen there was a small flock of Whoopers sangsvane on the "lagoons".

Other decent birds included a Woodcock rugde and very fresh tracks of at least two more, a Goshawk hønsehauk and a Black Guillemot teist. A rather interesting, out of place, passerine that evaded ID had a Black Redstart svartrødstjert kind of feel to it.....
