Lost my mojo!

Mrs B and I wandered aimlessly around off-patch hoping for a few of the birds that have been seen recently without success. The marsh sandpiper was gone from Hasslarp, but we managed to scare up three wood sandpipers, three common sandpipers, a ruff and a little ringed plover. The bitter SW wind soon saw us off the place though. Sandön was very quiet too, with just three greenshank and a gadwall representing the migrants.

At Rönnen we were unsurprised to discover that the black-tailed godwit had moved on and little had replaced it. Decided to check Sibirien on the way home, the same (?) flock of common scoter was there togther with a small group of scaup (8). No sign again of the black scoter, but I bet he is still out there somewhere.
