back home at last

Spent yesterday recovering from an epic family road tour, a three week camping trip that took in dragonfly sites in Denmark, Germany, Austria, France, Belgium and Holland! More about that later...

Today though I dragged myself off the sofa in the late afternoon for a look at Klarningen. Things were happening here and luckily there is still a little bit of water left. Pleasingly the first bird here was an osprey that spooked everything when it flew in to feed on a freshly caught silvery sea trout. A BK year-tick rather embarrassingly, especially as this bird has over-summered in all likelihood.

Waders were tricky to spot but an hour here produced a few; green sandpiper (1), wood sandpiper (2), greenshank (2), spotted redshank (1) and ruff (1) on the pools. Just before I left a near-adult white-tailed eagle made a brief appearance.
