I really felt we were going to find something good today like a Shore Lark or Lapland Bunting but it wasn’t to be. The face that the weather had not brought down anything new was confirmed when I went to Svellet hoping for lots of waders. I did see 168 Curlew (storspove) but this was only 4 more than the count from yesterday. A single Merlin (dvergfalk) was today’s only raptor. Maybe a return to sunny weather tomorrow and later in the week will produce some new birds – a harrier or kite would be nice.
