Greater Scaup - BergandAythya marila
Bergand - Bjergand - Lapasotka  - Fuligule milouinan

Greater Scaup are a scarce but reasonably regular spring migrant at Skogsøy with a very clear peak in the first half of May; the species is also an occasional winter visitor in the sheltered bays. For some reason I have yet to record this species in autumn at Skogsøy.

Utsira has very few spring records but more regular autumn records.

The blue line shows number of visits, the orange one the number of visits when Scaup have been recorded and the green one shows the maximum numbers I have recorded in any three day period.
