See sea

I chose to gaze at the waters off Hulvik today. Although the winds were not strong I hoped there might be a few birds that had chosen to flee from the storms further south in Sweden. Well, there were a few birds but no real movement. Gannets (havsule) are always nice to see though and there were at least 12 flying around including a tight group of seven. A couple of Kittiwakes (krykkje) were also results of the winds. Hardly any auks though which are normally a feature at this time of the year.

A Gannet (havsule) seen looking south west from Hulvik
38 Long-tailed Tits (stjertmeis) flying south in groups of 13 and 25 were unusual and largest bird of the day goes to a White-tailed Eagle seen on the other side of the fjord at many kilometres distance.

The forecast suggests Thursday may give another chance of more than just sea to see.
