swifts!

Managed a quick look at Klarningen before a trip to the dentists today. Things were much the same as yesterday, no sign of any white-winged black terns despite a huge influx into Skåne during the morning. The male shoveler was still loafing and had been joined by a male teal. Out on the water a red-necked grebe was new-in and a few swifts made an appearance. Always good to have them back.

In the afternoon the kids and I checked a number of wetlands searching for the black stork. No joy in BK, but Martin Åkesson just rang to say he has just seen it this evening back at Baramossa in Laholm kommun... Our searching produced no dragonflies (no sun) but we did bump into a pair of long-tailed tits, a long overdue year-tick.
