Highlights; 7th September 2008

Bluethroat (female)

Broad Billed Sandpiper/Dunlin (First calender year birds)

Arctic Skua (First calender year)

Highlights from the past week or so included a stunning juv. Broad Billed Sandpiper, my first in 20 years or so! Striking little wader with a very distinctive kinked bill and boldly marked plumage, hopefully will not have to wait so long for my next one. Also here is a juv. Arctic Skua, a big surprise on Vaxholm where I fish quite often, only had binoculars with me, would of had stunning views had I had a telescope with me.
Bluethroats are always a feature here in September, alway stop me too, wonderful birds, Perhaps the best sketch of the week of this species posted here too...
