Icecream and hedges

Spent most of the day either gardening or attending children's parties. Did manage to slip away with Mrs B for an hour and a half at Ranarpsstrand. A brisk SW wind was in operation and a few waders were flying by including golden plover (30), knot (2), bar-tailed godwit (3), spotted redshank (1) and a massive nine greenshank. A 1K red-backed shrike skulked about in the bushes. Tuesday is looking good for a sea-watch, I love August watches with the mad, southward dash of Arctic waders brightening up the long periods between real seabirds.
