2nd May 2019

Rain all morning prevented any nets being opened, so instead
we headed out to S. Udden late morning. This proved to be a good move with a stunning
2cy male Pallid Harrier (Stäpphök) coming in-off the sea, shortly followed by a Hobby (Lärkfalk).
There was less duck passage than yesterday but it did seem as though the rain
had dropped some passerines in as there were increased numbers of common migrants
like Robin (Rödhake) and Song Thrush (Taltrast). A Common Sandpiper (Drillsnäppa) was also on the rocks
