Hello from... Falsterbo

I arrived in Sweden late yesterday afternoon via Copenhagen airport, Malmö train station (which, by the way, is about twice the size compared to when I was last there and now seems to be mostly underground), and a bus from Malmö to Falsterbo — with 21 Common Cranes seen en route.

Ringing was unseasonably busy at the lighthouse garden this morning with 176 birds in total, the bulk (117) being Robins.

Other notables included a Firecrest, two Yellowhammers, a (European) Long-tailed Tit, and an adult male Starling (originally ringed in 2008).

Ringing totals are online here — just click 'Ringing'.

And back at the house this afternoon there were a handful of Brambling feeding with Chaffinches in the garden.
