Skogsøy 21 January 2014 - Too little, too late

Light SE, mostly clear but snowing during my time at Skogsøy.

The first winter Glaucous Gull polarmåke was again present among the gull flock at Tjeldstø - nice one.

It started snowing just before I parked at Skogsøy and kept snowing until I gave up / ran out of time. Nice and clear most of the day both before and after this - so not the best of timing.  Best sighting at Skogsøy was a Great Northern Diver islom feeding in the "lagoons" - only picked up on the way home once the snow cleared. The first Velvet Scoter sjøorre of the year and a Gannet havsule were the only birds of remote interest that passed during the snow storm.
