Auk are very regular during the winter months, although numbers vary
considerably. The species can be seen in relatively small numbers until
the end of February after which is is irregular. This species can,
however, be observed moving north well into May on occasion. Generally
do not show again until late October and peak numbers invariably occur
in November. There is some evidence to suggest that larger numbers can
move up the fjords immediately inland from Sotra than pass on the open
pattern and numbers are similar to those at Utsira.

visits when Little Auk have been recorded and the green one
(numbers on right hand axis) shows the average
numbers I have recorded in any three day period.
