I and a fried went to the coast yesterday to check on the birds. There is supposed to be a Ring-necked Duck in the harbour area. As this is an American duck it is very rare in Sweden. There was probably more then 1000 tufted ducks to chack out in order to find the Ring-necked one. We spend 4h looking for it but failed. But then, of course, half way home we got word it was sighted. My friend was not to happy then. We did not have time to turn around and go back.

Shadow Shot Sunday   There are shadows here and there even if not that obvious.
