Skogsøy 08 July 2015 - Summer storm

Wind increasing to gale force northerly during the day.

Some of the Gannets havsule today

It was late afternoon before I made it out to the lookout point. The wind was already too strong for most birds. In the course of 1.5 hours approximately 50 Gannets havsule headed south and much smaller numbers struggled north. Several Great Skua storjo also went south along with a small flock of Common Scoter svartand.

Only a couple of Lesser Black-backed Gulls sildemåke and around 10 Arctic Terns rødnebbterne flew north.

A lone Guillemot lomvi fed close in.
