Birding - 18/06/09

Overslept again this morning but got into the field for a short session before breakfast at Klarningen. Always worth checking in the rain this place - noteworthy birds dropping in briefly included spotted redshank (1), redshank (1) and wigeon (three males). Three green sandpiper and a single little ringed plover completed the cast.

After breakfast nipped out for a walk at Ripagården with Mrs B and Number 3. It rained and we saw very little, apart from a buzzard mugging lapwing chicks. An alarm-calling water rail was interesting to hear. A short stop at Hemmeslövstrand produced a single little tern feeding just offshore. Another quiet day.
