21st April 2018

An easterly wind picked up to a brisk southeasterly by the
afternoon and brought with it more migrants. The highlight was two
Mediterranean Gulls (Svarthuvad mås)
that flew north over the obs early afternoon and
were then seen flying south past the lighthouse later on, when five Arctic
(Silvertärna) also
flew north up the east coast. Good numbers of seaducks and grebes are also
migrating at the moment.

Another busy morning ringing with 98 birds ringed.

There will be 13 at the obs
tonight: Matt, Espen, Anton, Mickael and the youth group from Birdlife Sverige.
