Birding - 13/07/09

Day out with the kids saw us heading for Sandön, as we left Grevie a hobby whizzed past heading south (migrant?). Sandön was great with a showy osprey fishing as we arrived and later seen perched on the deck. Waders were better with broad-billed sandpiper (1), dunlin (33), avocet (8), spotted redshank (1), greenshank (5), redshank (6) and common sandpiper (2).

Later in the day we found ourselves at Torekov rev which, despite the crowds of holiday-makers, produced curlew sandpiper (2), dunlin (6), common sandpiper (1) and bar-tailed godwit (1). A quick check of Ripagården was disappointing with just four common sandpiper.
