Skogsøy 04 November - Little Auks

White-tailed Eagle havørn being mobbed by crows - no telephoto lens
Somewhat inclement weather with a brisk westerly breeze and plenty of rain. On the way out to the lookout there were superb views of a juvenile White-tailed Eagle havørn being mobbed by Hooded Crows kråke and Raven ravn. Best bird though was a Jack Snipe kvartbekkasin.
Little passing over the sea other than over 170 Little Auks alkekonge - now heading north, perhaps returning after the massive southward movement of a couple of weeks ago. A Great Northern Diver islom and several Black-legged Kittiwake krykkje also headed north.
A Woodcock rugde flushed on the way home was a typical early November migrant.
