Just back from a five day trip to Landsort, which was quite incredible. What a place to go birding, involved in finding or found the following...
Dusky Warbler, Richards Pipit, Ring Ouzel(several), Golden Eagle(2nd Calender), Kittiwake(very rare on baltic coast), Shore Lark(several), Woodlark(4), a late Tree Pipit, a siberian 'tristus' Chiffchaff and a host of other birds. Heavy passage of passerines and seabirds, a huge passage of nearly 11,000 geese on October 23rd will live long in the memory...

There was a lot to see and I was birding actively, though a few things demanded I stop a sketch...

Shore Lark was one such spcies..one of the very best birds in europe. Remarkable shape shifters as regards the black markings on the head and upper breast..

Also managed a few snaps and even some nice sound recordings of these feeding birds and a couple overhead migrating..
