European Shag - Toppskarv - Phalacrocorax aristotelis
Toppskarv - Topskarv - Karimetso - Cormoran huppe

European Shag has to be one the most regular species occurring at Skogsøy, however, there seems to be a lot going on and some very interesting information should be collected during the season of 2006. There appear to be quite defined seasonal movements of this species - something that is often masked by movements to and from roost sites. Not traditionally viewed as a migrant this species definitely migrates.....

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