Red-breasted Merganser - SilandMergus serrator
Småskrake  - Toppet Skallesluger - Tukkakoskelo - Harle huppe

Red-breasted Merganser are one of the most regularly seen species at Skogsøy throughout the year but are less regualr from July to September. The diagram below includes stationary birds so some of the passage is masked. However, there is a definte spring passage and an even more marked autumn migration with a peak in the first half of November.

Once again, this is a species that is seen more at Skogsøy than at Utsira.

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