Skogsøy 02 March 2014 - Spring

Light SE, light cloud cover and some drizzle.

Rock Pipit skjærpiplerke at Skogsøy

A late, lazy and short trip to Skogsøy produced the first Razorbill alke and Little Auk alkekonge of the year in Øygarden (unprecedently late!).  Small numbers of Gannets havsule passing and most of the usual suspects on the sea including a Velvet Scoter sjøorre and a Black Guillemot teist.

Some of the Lapwings vipe at Tjeldstø

Greylags grågås have arrived "everywhere" and a flock of at least eight Lapwing vipe were present at Tjeldstø. Four Woodpigeon ringdue at Breivik were another sign of spring.

Curlew storspove at Herdlevær yesterday

Spring well on the way!

A Curlew storspove at Herdlevær yesterday was probably one of the several overwintering birds rather than a migrant.
