As is usual for me at the weekend there hasn't been time for birding due to family commitments but today i squeezed in 4 minutes at Fornebu (i know the precise time because my daughter counted the seconds!). The sea was very calm and it was clear that pretty much all of the storm blown birds have left. Just a single young Kittiwake was to be seen alongside a handfull of Razorbills. A single Pom Skua was seen by others but not by me - i guess this may hang around if it can find enough food although with the Kittiwakes having left i suspect it will struggle. Highlight from the kitchen window was a pair of Greenfinches on the feeders.
