Solberg 15 May 2013

South easterly and sunny to start with, clouding over later.

Arctic Tern rødnebbterne

Sand Martin sandsvale - new species for Solberg

A short spell at Solberg produced two new species for this locality in the form of House Martin taksvale and Sand Martin sandsvale with at least two of each present.

Several Arctic Tern rødnebbterne and a couple of Whimbrel småspove were also the first I've seen in Øygarden this year.

Some movement over the sea in the form of Oystercatcher tjeld, Common Scoter svartand and Gannets havsule.

This Lesser Black-backed Gull sildemåke was colour ringed - and appeared much paler in the field than in photographs.

At Kollsnes a Lesser Black-backed Gull sildemåke was seen to be colour ringed but swam and then flew before I could get it in the scope...
