Tried hard for the glaucous this cold morning but drew a blank. Kicked off at Båstad and worked my way north. Båstad was busy at first light, geese and 17 whooper swans had dropped in for a breather and my only year-tick of the day came in the shape of three resting oystercatcher. Offshore founr long-tailed ducks loafed. Working the beached north to the top of Eskilstorpsstrand produced surprisingly little of note. Klarningen remains frozen but a few mute swan and some grazing geese is a sign that spring is around the corner. I checked Älemossen on the way home without result.
