Got up before dawn to try and check out my spotted crake 'hearing' of yesterday. No sign instead a marsh warbler with a nice repertoire. My ears are still blocked up and I have therefore re-evaluated the birds recorded yesterday... Hey ho. Lasted an hour at Klarningen before heading home. Nice to see two pairs of garganey this morning, plus two supplementary males. Also three dunlin, 18 ruff and a wood sandpiper.

The last week in May is when real rarities turn up, will I be up to the task?
