Herdlevær 03 October 2013

Strong southerly winds, mostly sunny

Just a quick walk around and a short seawatch whilst I ate breakfast. By no means covered the whole area - generally speaking quite a bit about. Didn't really check for passerines but Chiff-chaff gransanger, at least three Blackcaps munk and a Wheatear steinskvett seen.

Gannet havsule

Guillemots lomvi

Guillemot lomvi with garfish hornjel

Herring Gull gråmåke

Shag toppskarv

Several Dunlin myrsnipe, a Ruff brushane and a flock of Golden plover heilo as well as more unidentified waders further out. Good numbers of Gannet havsule and small numbers of Guillemot lomvi about.

A Jack Snipe kvartbekkasin was probably the best bird.
