Birding - 08/09/09

Spent the morning working on the house and the afternoon looking after the kids; a flock of 25 siskin and five crossbill provided temporary distraction.

After my Swedish lesson, headed out to Klarningen for the last half hour of daylight. Those nights are drawing in real fast these days. Pretty quiet here with just 60 flyby golden plover and two snipe on the wader front. No wildfowl at all. Raptors included marsh harrier (3) drifting to roost at Skottorp and single kestrel and sparrowhawk. A single swift zoomed south against the setting sun. Autumn is really here.
