Christmas birds count (20141225)

With Christmas wrapped up on Christmas Eve in the proper Swedish way there was some time for birding today under a blue sky and sub-zero temperatures (at last!). We walked the coast between Burensvik and Påarps mal. The easy highlight was the American black duck drake that was loafing off Dagshög and it then drifted north alongside me to Påarps mal. I still have not seen it close enough to photograph but it looks like it might stay into the New Year. Finger crossed.

Other highlights were snipe (1, Dagshög), goldfinch (2, Dagshög) and dunnock (1, Påarps mal).
