Birding - 15/07/09
After a morning's work on the house, we headed down to the beach at Stora Hultstrand - very busy and not many birds. In the evening I slipped out for two hours and checked out Ripagården. The rotting seaweed in the little bay here was disappointing a few days ago, but was crawling with waders this evening. The stars were two Temminck's stints, but also in attendance were wood sandpiper (4), common sandpiper (7), dunlin (1), little ringed plover (4) and ringed plover (5). Nice little haul for minimal effort.
