quick look at Klarno

Had a quick look at Klarningen at midday. Quite a lot of water on site and the cattle are on. The place looks great for waders but not much happening. 19 oystercatchers was a big total and an osprey left the site as we arrived with a big garfish in it's talons and was the highlight of the twenty minutes.

more long-tailed skua

Got a little closer to long-tailed skuas on one of our walks in Lapland. Great birds.

long-tailed skua

Enjoying a hot and sunny tour of Swedish Lapland at the moment. Good to be back in the field after working hard on the house since I got back from Romania. This long-tailed skua was the easy highlight of yesterday.
