10 Common Scoter (svartand) and 2 Wigeon on the lake were obviously new but my hopes of migrating waders and more waterfowl were not to be fulfilled. There were a few passerines moving but nothing exciting and no new summer migrants could be seen or heard. On the green fields there was a noticeable increase in the numbers of Fieldfares (gråtrost) and at Kirkeby we had separate sightings of 4,1 and 6 Ring Ouzels (ringtrost) that could well have been different groups and the group of 6 definitely appeared to have just dropped out of the sky (reports from other places suggest a very large arrival today).
It will rain through the afternoon so maybe something will turn up later or tomorrow…..I live in hope.We had Parrot Crossbills again with four birds in the same trees as yesterday. This makes me believe that the two males I photographed yesterday were indeed different individuals.
|6 male and 4 female Common Scoters (svartand)|
|Osprey (fiskeørn) - 1 of 2 that appeared at the same time both from the north|
|three different Ring Ouzels|
|female Parrot Crossbill (furukorsnebb) - one of a group of four in the same group of 3 small pine trees as yesterdays birds|
