Tjeldstø 30 April 2015 - First Cuckoo of the year and not enough seawatching

Overcast with very light rain much of the day.

Cuckoo gjøk

At Tjeldstø the first Cuckoo gjøk of the year put in an appearance and even gave a photo opportunity. This was the first reported in the county of Hordaland so far this year.

An hour at Herdlevær from 12:20 to 13:20 produced a White-billed Diver gulnebblom, a pale phase Arctic Skua tyvjo, plenty of migrating Red-throated Diver smålom, Common Scoter svartand and most of the usual suspects. A non-adult Peregrine vandrefalk flew over as I left.
