Birding - 12/11/09

Another four-hour session today after dropping off the kids. Started at Glimminge, hoping for yesterday's brent geese, but no joy. Did get goosander (2), hen harrier (female), snipe (1), twite (4 south) and common crossbill (4 south).

Moved on to Ranarpstrand and walked through to Lervik. Highlights of this leg were Slavonian grebe (2), shag (2), bean goose (1 south, only my third patch record), skylark (4), white wagtail (1), twite (25 south) and snow bunting (10).

Picked up the kids and took them up the hill to Hålehallstugan (whooper swan 4) to play. Drove back via Ehrenstorp and found a flock of thrushes with small numbers of mistle thrush, redwing and fieldfare.
