Walking the kids again
Did the coastal section between Dagshög and Torekov sewage farm this afternoon with the team. Fairly quiet day, although redstart, willow warbler and lesser whitethroat have obviously arrived in force. Barnacle geese are on the move too with a flock of 100 north and ten resting at Påarps Mal (incredibly a patch year-tick). A few waders about with a total of four whimbrel, one greenshank and my first patch common sandpiper of the year. Back-tracking on my own to pick up the car, had a splendid female merlin charging along north and a single male whinchat in the juniper. A quiet session.
