Birding - 06/06/09

Wheatear - busy feeding young along the coast today

Overslept this morning and did not get into the field until 0600. Walked between Glimminge and Dagshög before breakfast. Fine day with a brisk SE wind. A scattering of marsh warblers, thrush nightingales and icterine warblers were evident in song. Plenty of fledgling birds about too. Highlights included: goosander (male Rammsjöstrand), hobby (bird of the day at Burensvik) and yellow wagtail (female at Dagshög).

Got back to be whisked out again with the family to Ranarpstrand. 45 minutes here produced two avocet and a male wigeon. Quiet sessions but enjoyable.

Another birder (showing well but distantly at Grytskaren) - rare sighting around these parts!
