wet seawatch

Had an hour-and-a-half at Yttre Kattvik with the kids this morning as we kicked off the Christmas break with a parade of kittiwakes (39). Plenty of red-throated divers too (45) going past, as well as a 20+ gannet. Offshore and resting were some south-bound whooper swans (28) and a couple fo Slavonian grebes.

  1. We only had one Red-throated Loon yesterday ( that's what Red-throated Divers are called here) but we did have several Ridgway's Rails, a Sora and a Swamp Sparrow yesterday during a very high tide in Oakland, CA. Even got a few decent photos http://naturalhistorywanderings.com/2014/12/21/a-relatively-big-day-with-photos/
