Skogsøy 31 January 2015 - "Migration"

Calm, more or less sunny with light easterly winds.

Things looked good before I even left the house with a flock of eight Waxwing sidesvans and a large flock of Fieldfare gråtrost heading south.

A Skogsøy well over 300 more Fieldfare gråstrost moved south - probably a response to the cooler weather. A Peregrine vandrefalk, a Sparrowhawk spurvehauk and singles of Gannet havsule and Kittiwake krykkje were among the other birds seen here.

A drive-by at Herdlevær produced more Fieldfare gråtrost and nine Starling stær
