Øygarden 23 November 2006

Skogsøy was quite productive with highlights including two Peregrines vandrefalk, a Great Northern Diver islom heading north, six Red-throated Diver smålom flying south and a good supporting cast including around 30 Little Auk alkekonge, a couple of Snow Bunting snøspurv, at least one White-tailed Eagle havørn and several Velvet Scoter sjøorre. A few Black Guillemot teist, two Northern Gannet havsule and 15+ Kittiwake krykkje also seen.

Other good birds from Øygarden today included a Kestrel tårnfalk near Kollsnes and a Water Rail vannrikse at Toftøy.
