European Storm Petrel - Havsvale - Hydrobates pelagicus
Stormsvala  - Lille Stormsvale - Merikeiju - Oceanite tempete

European Storm Petrel are rarely seen during normal seawatching, although they are more regular than the graph below would suggest as unidentified petrels, probably of this species, have been noted on a number of occasions. Skogsøy, however, has been used a ringing locality for this species and can be caught regularly here when lured in using playback. August is the best month for this activity.

In the diagram below the blue line shows number of visits, the orange one the number of visits when Storm Petrel have been recorded and the green one shows the total involved.
