I am writing this whilst waiting out a rain shower in Pasvik. Pasvik is a locality I have dreamt about visiting since a child along with localities like Vadsø and Vardø on the Varangerfjord. Well my dream has come true and the birds have not disappointed. I'll write a full report with photos once back in Oslo later in the week but here are the highlights so far:
Lesser White-fronted Geese, Gyr Falcon, King and Steller's Eiders, Pine Grosbeak,Siberian Tit, Siberian Jay, Great Grey and Hawk Owls,4 Species of Skua and 5 species of Auk.
