Birding - 08/10/09

Regular readers will know that I absolutely hate the removal of material from the beaches round here. Who does this? The beach at Torekov rev was badly hit during the recent storm and covered with weed. Response, remove 400 cubic metres of material from the beach. The next storm will be worse and so on... No-one round here believes in sea-level rise apparently.

Had a free morning, after nine o'clock today, so headed out for a thrash around Torekov and Ripagården. Things were pretty quiet (missed the vismig by getting out too late), but things had to calm down after the drama of the last few days. Påarps Mal produced an odd snipe (possibly great), shag (4), whooper swan (1) and blackcap (1). The sewage works was very quiet, although managed to read the darvic on a Danish black-headed gull. Torekov rev had redshank (13), dunlin (7) and golden plover (10).

Picked up the kids from day-care later on and had a single grey wagtail and a flock of eight parrot crossbill in the village on the way back.
