When I visited the island in September, we combined the search for passerines on the main island Røstlandet with a pelagic trip to the waters off Skomvær lighthouse.
|Starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) are gathering everywhere on the island, and|
seems to like it around the sheep. Stær.
|The siberian Yellow-browed Warbler (Phylloscopus inornatus) is regular on|
fall migration at Røst - gulbrynsanger
|A group of first year Red Knots (Calidris canutus) - polar sniper|
|First year Pomarine Skua (Stercorarius pomarinus) at Skomvær - polarjo|
|A couple of Sooty Shearwaters (Puffinus griseus) showed up around|
the boat off Skomvær - grålire
|A soon as we had loaded some chum in the water, the Fulmars |
(Fulmarus glacialis) showed up around the boat - havhest
