On Valdresflya it looks as though the Long-tailed Skuas have moved on which isn’t surprising given the lack of lemmings so it was therefore a surprise to see a Rough-legged Buzzard although a Golden Eagle would have been looking for something larger like Ptarmigan or hares. On the pond where I had three Scaup on Tuesday there was now just a male and the females are probably off laying eggs (would he have mated with both females?). I also had a couple of female Common Scoters that were probably looking for nest sites.
