Walking around with my family. 7.9.2020

Last weekend Sanni had plans so not much time for birds. I had nearly hour and a half raptor watch in Viikki fields on Sunday 6th and later we went to have nice walk to Lammassaari with the kids and that was it.
Raptor watch was relatively poor. I had at least four different Hobby, six Sparrow Hawks, lone Kestrel, Goshawk and one migrating Red-throated Pipit. Sun was shining, but the wind was a bit harsh, otherwise all was perfect. Ok, more birds would be nice but can´t complain.

Very distant Kestrel. I was bored so I had time to take some pictures of it. 

Weather was great. 

Later we wen to Lammassaari, but nothing really special there. Loads of people, few birders and pretty good selection of shorebirds. in half an hour I counted four Dunlins, one Curlew Sandpiper, around ten Ruffs, two European Golden Plovers, some Common Snipes and lone Eurasian Curlew.
Lone adult White-tailed Eagle sat near the nest and gatherings of Anas-ducks are bigger and bigger every week. I was happy that we came there and it was nice to see some birds after a little break.

Great photo of us two. Julius is always happy.

Mixed flock of Golden Plovers, Lapwings and others.

Four Dunlins and lone Curlew Sandpiper.

Same Group.

Today we walked around our fields near by, but nothing really interesting. Few Sparrow Hawks, lone juvenile Red-backed Shrike and peace of aviation history, a Douglas DC-3 air plane. This plane was build 1942 and it is only flyable of it´s kind. Old engines give it a typical sound when it passed our house two three times a day.

Next weekend more birds, but who knows what kind of rarities will show up during the week.
