Finally white-winged gulls have arrived in small numbers (earlier there were only single birds here and there). A little gulling during the week revealed about 10 Iceland Gulls including a pale Kumlien’s Gull and 7 Glaucous Gulls.

Ducks have also arrived after the lakes became ice-free. In Eiði a Common Pochard had joined about 20 Tufted Ducks.
