Birding - 28/05/10

Nipped out in the morning and walked a few stretches of coast. Vejbystrand/Stora Hultstrand produced six avocet, greenshank (1), common sandpiper (1) and best of all a flock of 41 brent geese. The latter species a patch year-tick and one I missed last year. Walked Grytskaren and Ranarpsstrand next and perhaps had the same flock of brent (43 this time) and two more avocet. Sandwich terns are starting to loaf around. Last stop of the morning was Glimminge which was quiet just shoveler (2) and a single great crested grebe.

In the afternoon the kids and I had to go to Helsingborg, so on the way back we stopped briefly at Hasslarpsdammar. Marsh warbler singing away here and heaps of hirundines and swallows, which received plenty of fruitless attention.

Things look good for a bit of coastal vismig action tomorrow morning.
