white stork

My second BK white stork, a ringed project bird, appeared in the sky above Klarningen this morning. Only the 11th BK record...

Had a few hours in the field this morning. Stopped off to listen for wood warblers unsuccessfully at Atteköp. Tried for little grebe at Frestensfällan too without success. But it all came good at Klarningen. Shortly after arrival I noticed a soaring white stork coming from the north and the bird drifted west over the next five minutes. Only my second BK bird. One day I will get a black stork... Also here three green sandpipers, a marsh harrier and a sand martin were new for the year. Other notables included a white-tailed eagle, two shoveler, ten ruff, green sandpiper (1) and two house martins. Great session.
