brief respite

Been off the grid a lot lately, with very little birding being done. We are knee-deep in a huge house spring-clean and associated DIY package at the moment. Turfing out 5 years worth of detritus...

But this morning I did get the chance to do a couple of hours birding. Fifteen minutes at Båstad produced one Slavonian grebe (my first since the big freeze) and 15 long-tailed ducks looked rather smart. Klarningen next, three cranes present on arrival did not last long and were the best of it sadly. Counting the wildfowl failed to produce anything exciting, just 88 teal, no wigeon and a single redshank.
