Two standout birds were found today; firstly a female Steller’s
Eider (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.
