Having spent the last week looking after poorly children, it was inevitable that I would finally succumb... But we had the first dunnock of the year in the garden during the morning. This is always the first sign of spring for us, they usually winter in small numbers on the coast (though not this winter) but when they move up the hill then it is just a few (well, 6) weeks until the pied flycatchers and redstarts are back and real spring is here.

Having heard the news of a south-bound king eider further north I checked the eider flock at Stora hultsstrand briefly in the afternoon. No joy, just a rock pipit at Vejbystrand.
