Arctic Tern - Rødnebbterne - Sterna paradisaea
Silvertärna - Havterne- Lapintiira - Sterne arctique

Arctic Tern is the commonest species of tern observed at Skogsøy and the largest numbers are recorded during the spring; often in the second half of May. The species is seen regualry throughout the summer and well into September; occasional birds are seen into early October. 

The occurence pattern for this species seems very similar to that of Utsira.

The blue line shows number of visits, the orange one the number of visits when Arctic Tern have been recorded and the green one (numbers on right hand axis) shows the average numbers I have recorded in any three day period.
