ice-free Klarningen

Had a quick look at Klarningen this afternoon. No ice and plenty of water, could this be the spring we have been waiting patiently for? We will have to see what the water levels do I guess. A total of 21 lapwing was good, many displaying over the access track fields. Skylarks in song too.

But it was the duck numbers that were striking, already 18 teal, one wigeon and a handful of mallard on site. Six whooper swans were having a breather here as well. On the way home we stopped off briefly at Eskilstorpsstrand, ice still present here just offshore but seaduck beyond, including 100 velvet scoter
