Birding - 11/05/09

One of fifteen Temminck's stints seen this morning

This morning Number 3 and I headed out for a spot of birding before the weekly shop. We headed out to Sandön first and had a small group of nine grey plover - they looked splendid in summer plumage - a year-tick. Otherwise quiet here with high water levels reducing the area available to waders. Next stop was Rönnen here we had only a short time but were rewarded with 15 Temminck's stints and a single superb little stint (the latter a year-tick and always good to see in spring). The supporting cast included eight wood sandpipers and a single whimbrel. Nice little session.
