back early (20140611)

Arrived home in disarray early from my Romanian tour after a terrible time with sinusitis and my teeth! A series of misdiagnoses, a root canal procedure and a huge bank holiday weekend in Romania derailed my attempts to get proper treatment and in the end I reluctantly flew home in an appalling state. All well now though and on antibiotics and the trip to the dentist this morning confirmed that I should be OK.

After the dentist's I sat around at Klarningen for an hour. Spotted redshank (3) were new for the year and there were also plenty of green sandpiper (16) and wood sandpiper (6) around. Return passage begins. Also on site at least two little ringed plover, 16 male teal and fledgling reed buntings.
