28-08 Øygarden

first-winter Yellow Wagtail
Today I checked Breivik, Herdlevær, Svellingen and Turøy. It was quiet, with some Willow Warblers on the move, a Spotted Flycatcher at Turøy and lots of pipits and wagtails. At Breivik a Yellow Wagtail, not a common sight in Bergen area. Spent an hour at sea at Svellingen. Presumably not as good as Skogsøy, but quite OK for at least the bigger seabirds and not so far a walk. This hour produced two Great Skuas, some 30 Gannets and a group of 25 Red Knot with a Sanderling among them. Not bad at all.
