lunch hour birding


Pale-bellied brent at Torekov rev - the May run of good birds continues

Had half an hour in the field today whilst labouring in the gardens of the rich and famous. Hit Torekov rev, picking up a lonely-looking female marsh harrier over Flytermossen on the way. The rev was rather quiet but almost the first bird in the 'scope was a pale-bellied brent goose! Brents are always noteworthy (under 20 records for me in BK so far) but this was my first pale-bellied in Sweden, a sub-species I am not that familiar with. No other birds of note, although a reasonable passage of yellow wagtails was apparent over Torekov during the morning.
