Time flies and it’s already weekend once again. And that means no work at the fish factories and less gulls to watch. I attended a family birthday in the morning and then I went to check the northern islands.
In Klaksvík there were about 40 Iceland Gulls including two Kumlien’s Gull. In Hvannasund there were only about 25 birds left and two of them were Kumlien’s Gulls. The rather dark bird from yesterday had gone. There is a serious turn over of birds – there are new birds arriving all the time. But often they just stay for a day, then they’re gone.
At Viðareiði the long staying Bean Goose was still present. It has joined a flock of domestic geese, so it looks rather content and happy. But otherwise there isn’t much to report. But they promise more windy conditions during the week, so there might come some new birds in.
