We made two trips to the mainland. The first was just a half-day in the Beka reserve near Puck, based on a recommendation of birders we met in Hel - which was really spot on! In a part of the reserve, a flooded meadow, easily watched from the official walking path, resembled a scene from the Northern Sea coast. Several Broad-billed Sandpipers were feeding right in front of us, joined by a larger flock of Dunlins, some Common Ringed Plovers and then even Red-necked Phalaropes. A more distant flock of Greylag Geese hid a lone Brant Goose. Again, Common Rosefinch was common, but this time we got some really nice views and pictures. Grasshopper Warbler was heard, but not seen, so was Golden Oriole.
