Marvellous seawatch

 This morning I spent three hours at Geitingneset at Herdlevær for a seawatch. Terje Hansen, Laila and Egil Frantzen were already there when I came. Winds came from the southwest and were moderate. These circumstances delivered very good numbers of shearwaters. I saw 10 Sooty Shearwaters (new for my Norwegian list and thus for Hordaland as well) and 29 Manx Shearwaters with a group of 16 birds together!!!

Terje Hansen did spend a few hours more and saw over 100 shearwaters!! Further worth mentioning were 4 Ruddy Turnstones, a adult Black-headed Gull and seven Twites
