Eurasian Wigeon - BrunnakkeAnas penelope
Bläsand - Pibeand - Haapana - Canard siffleur

Eurasian Wigeon tend to occurr in small numbers at Skogsøy, being slightly more regualr and numerous in the autumn than in the spring. In spring they start passing in early April and continue into May; in autumn they head south between early September and early November. This species is often seen under less than ideal migration conditions.  

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