Puffin are very much a "summer" bird and are a species I have not
recorded at Skogsøy (and only occasionally in Øygarden)
during December and January. Large numbers can be recorded
during May - up to 1000 on occasion.
Occurrence pattern and numbers are similar to those at Utsira, although
the maximum count at Skogsøy is much higher and the species can
be seen a little earlier in the season at Skogsøy..
The blue line shows number of visits, the orange one the number of
visits when Puffin have been recorded and the green one
(numbers on right hand axis) shows the maximum
numbers I have recorded in any three day period.
