The trip went very well. In all we saw or heard about 151 or maybe a couple more. A few mammals too.The self-guided map worked very well. We could put the co-ordinates straights into a sat-nav and it took us perfectly to the locations.
White-backed woodpecker was hard, in the end 5 of us saw it, but two of the group were chasing a tawny owl then searching for a corncrake so missed me calling them when I found it.
We’re already thinking about next year, maybe an earlier one for seller’s eider and more woodpeckers/owls. Or late May for great snipe etc.
