Herdlevær 19 August 2013 - Shearwaters

South westerly winds with variable cloud cover.

No time to make the trip out to Skogsøy so I joined another birder for a couple of hours at Herdlevær for some reasonably productive seawatching:

Sooty Shearwater grålire 1S
Manx Shearwater havlire 2S
Great Skua storjo 10S
Arctic Skua tyvjo 3S
Red-throated Diver smålom 2S
Diver (Great Northern?)1N
Fulmar havhest 6S
Golden Plover heilo 1S
Ruff brushane 10S
Sanderling sandløpeer 1S
Bar-tailed Godwit lappspove 10S
Turnstone steinvender 9S
Whimbrel småspove 1
Shelduck gravand 2S

Loads of Gannets havsule and lots of unidentified wader flocks also heading south.
