Birding - 09/09/09

Had a couple of hours on the coast this morning. Walked from Vejbystrand to Lervik and then dropped in for a quick look at Ranarpstrand. Pretty quiet on the stretch walked; red-throated pipit was reported yesterday. Did get a scattering of wheatear and whinchat and about ten bar-tailed godwits. Overhead a few tree pipits could be heard. The best bird was a female hen harrier, seen well as it drifted south.

Ranarpstrand was a bit busier with golden plover (113), grey plover (1), greenshank (1) and snipe (1). Be interesting to see what the forecast northerly winds bring.
