Skogsøy 26 September 2014 - Sort of seawatching

Westerly gale, mostly sunny.

Gannet havsule

Wind too strong for most stuff to be flying but grabbed an hour of seawatching between 1215 and 1315. At least 165 Fulmar havhest headed north during this period as did a few Guillemots lomvi and a single Kittiwake krykkje. This is the highest number of Fulmars seen in the county for some years - at least according to artsdatabasen. Also seen were at least 60 Gannet havsule - heading in both directions.

Heading south were 11 Common Scoter svartand, a Teal krikkand and four Red-throated Diver smålom.
