Birding yesterday

A pre-breakfast session saw me checking out Klarningen. The rain and high winds over the weekend have bolstered water-levels here and there was a little more activity than there has been lately. A male ruff flew through, otherwise just the resident waders present. A pair of shoveler still present and at least three teal. Broods of goldeneye and shelduck were nice to see and a pair of cuckoos chased each other around. Marsh warblers were vocal with at least five males heard, mostly in vegetation along the river.

On the way home quickly checked out Petersberg. Calyopteryx virgo and Ischnura elegans were on the wing. Both pairs of red-necked grebes had single youngsters and redpoll and garden warbler were vocal.
