glaucous gull dipping again

Born to dip, that's me. No sign of the glaucous gull again in a a morning session that dragged on rather. The weather has gone cooler again with winds from the east. Staking out Eskilstorpsstrand produced a ringed plover this morning and after a side-trip to Klarningen a white-tailed eagle was out in the bay terrorising the scoter flocks.

Klarningen was nearly ice-free and wildfowl have responded, with five tufted duck and nine goldeneye new in. The gadwall pair remains and five whooper swans had a rest before heading northwards. A rough-legged buzzard looked in on the place and my first hen harrier of the year, a female, passed by too.
