Skogsøy 22 December 2013

Winds still strong and predominantly from the south

Skogsøy was predictably wet underfoot. Little passing over the sea during a brief period of seawatching, However, a minumum of five White-tailed Eagles havørn and Purple Sandpiper fjæreplytt resting at the usual lookput post (first time I've seen them so high above sea level).

A first year White-tailed Eagle havørn - most were adults today

Part of a passing Eider ærfugl flock

Otherwise just the usual suspects including Kittiwake krykkje, Common Crossbills grankorsnebb etc.

A flock of about 20 Starling stær were at Oen

Other stuff seen recently have been more of the same with Razorbill alke, Kittiwake krykkje and Gannet havsule at Hjelme Vest yesterday.

Redwings rødvingetrost were feeding with the Blackbird svarttrost flock at Skjold a couple of days back and a Goldeneye kvinand was another new house tick the day before that.
