Skogsøy 29 March 2014 - Another productive non-birding day

Calm and sunny again. The fantastic weather continues.

Kicked the day off with a very vocal Grey-headed Woodpecker gråspett from the terrace at home. Some indications of passage over Nautnes too with small flocks of what were presumably Lesser Redpolls brunisik and small numbers of Meadow Pipits heipiplerke flying over. White/pied wagtail linerle also heard flying over here.

Another late and lazy trip to Skogsøy was rather more successful than yesterday birdwise with highlights being a Black-throated Diver storlom and a couple of Puffins lunde. Several Red-throated Diver smålom, a few Black-headed Gulls hettemåke and a light northward movement of Common Gulls fiskemåke. Other stuff here included Guillemot lomvi on the sea and a Razorbill alke heading north.
