Raining - 10/06/09

Miserable wet weather this morning - we do need the rain though. A dawn session walking between Segelstorpstrand and Glimminge produced a few things. A family party of green sandpipers at Segelstorpstrand were presumably local birds. Starlings are sweeping south in small family groups and will soon start to coalesce into bigger flocks. All reminders that the breeding season is drawing to a close for many species and we will soon be involved in southward migration! Time flies. The male common rosefinch was still singing at Öllövstrand and was the easy highlight of the walk.

Had a look around a few sites near Båstad mid-morning, a few loafing goosander and a large flock of 75 feeding common terns were encountered but no sign of the Caspian tern that was reported four days ago. Would have been a BK tick for me but will have to wait now.

Some rain (from Kazakstan):
