more weather

I took the bus down to Båstad late in the morning to see if anything was going past. It was quiet here again with just a couple of little gulls past in a sample hour. I then headed for the bus only to watch it leave two minutes early...

This prompted a four-mile walk home through Sinarpsdalen on the lookout for more year-ticks - which netted some common woodland birds but not the hoped-for hawfinch. Nearing home I got news of a grey phalarope at Torekov, so we borrowed a car and spent the last hour of light searching in vain in the stormy sea offshore. I did pick up a south-bound 2K pomarine skua for my trouble and we could look south to the the glaucous gull at the sewage works.
