Solberg 30 April 2013 - Poms

Strong northerly winds, mostly sunny but some wintery showers.

Not much time spent out and about but a trip to Solberg paid off today with the first two Pomarine Skuas polarjo of the year heading north. This is the earliest sighting ever in Øygarden (or Hordaland for that matter)

Other sightings here inlcuded several Red-throated Diver smålom, a Great Skua storjo and a steady stream of Gannets havsule and Kittiwake krykkje.

It would have been a good today to be at Skogsøy.....

Some other good news was that Ringed Plovers sandlo have returned to their most regular breeding site in Øygarden.
