Weather: Nice and sunny with moderate wind from norteast.

Location: 10 km west of Alingsas, Sweden.

Time At Location: 07:27-17:00

Just twenty minutes into the big sit, a Purple Heron flew by. A lifer. Could hardly belive it. Not seen in Sweden this year and only 37 sightings ever. I was almost in chock for an hour. Not good for the competition but I can live with that. Great fun to be a part of all this. With better planning, from me, next year, I can get more birders to join my circle.
