Birding (again) - 14/06/09
Nipped out again in the evening, hoping that the reported Caspian tern had holed up in the bay. Checked Båstad seafront, a few common terns here (including a 3K bird) but no sign of carrot-bill. Checked out Petersberg before going home and had a superb basking grass snake that avoided the camera sadly. Pretty quiet otherwise, although I watched an excellent male ringed plover doing it's puff-chested, goose-step display prior to mounting the female. Racy stuff.
