april gyr

Despite spending large chunks of the day working I ended up with three BK year-ticks - a great result and a sign that spring has indeed re-started. Working at Knallarp produced a surprise flyover green sandpiper - better late than never. A lengthy lunch at Torekovs rev finally produced crane for the year - a flock of 46 looking glorious as they headed north well offshore. The rev itself produced a nice male linnet - another first for the year.

Just before getting back to work I had time for a quick look at Norra Ängalag and Tjällran. This paid off handsomely when the gyr flew in from the south and landed on the island. Distant views but my first April bird. The big surprise came in the sprint back to the car though in the shape of two coal tits in the juniper scrub - migrants!
