Hjelme Vest 12 February 2014 - more SEAPOP and an Øygarden "mega"

Calm, sunny and cold again.

Counting seabirds at a couple of the localities used for population monitoring again.

Hjelme Vest produced a massive five Curlew storspove - something that may indicate some kind of early spring movement. A Woodpigeon ringdue also flew in off the sea here. Otherwise it was situation normal - a Great Northern Diver islom, Black Guillemots teist and a couple of Velvet Scoter sjøorre in addition to the more numerous species. Two flocks of Purple Sandpiper fjæreplytt complimented yesterday's good showing.

Solberg was very quiet with little on the sea - at least four Otters seen here though. A small flock of Purple Sandpiper fjæreplytt fed here too.
