Øygarden 01 May 2015 - and the best bird was....?

Northerly winds and sunny.

Guiding again, popped in at a few localities in Øygarden and cleaned up on the target list of Eagle Owl hubro, White-tailed Eagle havørn and White-billed Diver gulnebblom - the latter at Skogsøy where a total of at least six were logged by one of the regular loonatics.

In a local context a Rook kornkråke, also at Skogsøy, was the bird of the day. Hard to understand how this could possibly beat the rest of the stuff we saw today....

A Great Skua storjo - the first of the year - was reported from Herdlevær.
