22nd April 2019

Two standout birds were found today; firstly a female Steller’s
(alförrädere) flew past Södra
Udden at about 5am, a brilliant record of this species which has suffered significant declines in recent years. The other was an Eagle Owl (Berguv) seen from the north end
this afternoon perched on a skerry offshore.

Sunny conditions prevailed all day along with a
gentle southerly breeze.

A quieter session this morning with 44 birds ringed.

There will be four at the obs
tonight: Matt, Espen and two members.
