Great days. 20-21.4.2013

What a great two days i had. Yesterday i did not have time to write any post, so there is for both days.
Yesterday was nice sunny day and i met Jari in Viikki again. One field was almost under water and there was many birds having party in the water.
We found some Wood Sandpipers and single female Garganey. Also few Barn Swallows, about 60 Teals, 50 Common Snipes and some other common birds.
Otherwise Viikki was little bit disappointment.. One Osprey, and other stuff.. nothing special :)

Bean Geese. 

Barnacle Geese. 

Northern Lapwing

I had little troubles with the time because i had to go to help my sister to move she´s stuff to new apartment

Today i went to Maari bird tower where i had nice watch. Common Cranes, Chiffchaff, Ringed Plover, Little Ringed Plover, Caspian Tern, Smews and other stuff.
Later i went again to Vantaa, this time to check some Ring Ouzels. When i arrived to the place, Roni Väisänen came trhere with he´s girlfriend Annika. Nice to have familiar company. Later we found one Ring Ouzel, but it was super shy. I got very poor document photo of the bird.
After this, Roni remembered a sighting of Pink-footed Geese quite near and we drove there quickly.
Birds were still there and little bonus was two Tundra Swans! Nice year-tick.
Here is some photos from the day.

Reed Bunting.


Ringed and Little Ringed Plovers. 

And that poor photo of that Ring Ouzel.

Can you id it? :)

Thanks Roni for company and it was nice to see you after long time.
Next two nights i must work, but next Thursday i go to Hanko bird observatory. More story from there later
