wildfowl counting

The boring fog finally lifted and I headed out for a day in the field to do some wildfowl counts between Dagshög and Hovs Hallar. Good to be out again and predictably I picked up eight year-ticks. Highlights of the session were two gadwall, a gannet past Norra Ängalag, five shag at Torekov, two white-tailed eagles, a goshawk at Norra Ängalag, and the water pipit at Påarps mal. Ripagården was almost devoid of birds and I saw no alcids anywhere!

Afterwards I checked out Yttre Kattvik and Älemossen without result.
