Black Guillemot - Teist - Cepphus grylle
Herdlevær, Øygarden, August 2008

This species is one of the more appealing birds of Øygarden and can be seen at any time of year.  It breeds in small numbers and is also seen on passage.

The juvenile bird in these pictures was seen swimming in a sheltered cove; I crept up on it on my belly and ended up quite close....
