Not a lot of time for birding today. It was quite windy so there was only one option anyways – to watch gulls. In Klaksvík there were tons of them. Numbers of Lesser Black-backed Gulls is rapidly increasing, but Herring Gull is still the most common. There were about 40 Iceland Gulls and one Glaucous Gull present today – numbers are really fluctuating.
There was one well-marked adult Kumlien’s Gull and a few brown 2w birds present. I’ve finally got my lens back so it was a pleasure to take some better photos finally.
The forecast promises a lot of westerlies the coming days and temperatures will drop to below zero. So it doesn’t look like there is much to expect – except for more gulls and maybe a duck of some sort.
