May seawatch

Off to Turkey this morning but could not resist sampling the first few hours of a rare May westerly gale. There was stuff moving with four pomarine skuas taking the honours, alongside a supporting cast of two little gulls, an Arctic skua, a fulmar and two gannets. I had to leave at 0700, 25 minutes before Åkesson in Melbystrand scored a Caspian tern heading towards BK (a much-wanted BK tick). It gets worse though the last message I got before crossing the bridge into Denmark was of three snow geese at Klarningen... C'est la vie.

  1. I missed the snow geese as well, took a 5 min too long power nap.
    To make things worse I had a Great snipe in Klarningen yesterday.
