I left the patch to twitch a stonechat yesterday. Later that evening I found that I had dipped one in BK at Grytskären. Today I tried to make amends but dipped, although the bird is apparently still present. No time to go tomorrow so I will have to sweat it out and try again on Tuesday. Bugger!

Whilst searching Lervik, Grytskären and Ranarpsstrand for the stonechat I did get some good birds including my first twite (4) of the year, the male pintail, four barnacle geese north and a crane flying south. But managed to miss a wheatear too so not the most successful outing.

A last minute session in the evening at Klarningen chasing a reported ruff was equally unsuccessful. It was just one of those days.
