A few ones today

 Svartvit flugsnappare- Ficedula hypoleuca - Pied Flycatcher
They have finally arrived and are looking for a home.

 Fisktärna - Sterna hirundo - Common Tern
It was low pressure and drizzling so all terns and gulls chased at the water surface
Sothöna - Fulica atra - Eurasian Coot
That is quite a nest she has created. It is the first time I have seen the Coot with such a visible nest. And there is another one also that has the nest a Horned Grebe used last year.

Rörhöna - Gallinula chloropus - Common Moorhen
The moorhen is shy and hard to spot. But today I was lucky. This one I have seen before and it probably has a mate and nest. Today I also spotted one on the other side of the road so maybe there are two couples. Now I´m looking forward to see chicks. :)
