What a place. Sand dunes and slacks almost surrounded by a turbulent sea, wisps of waders skirting the shoreline, the iconic lighthouse, interesting copses and bushy areas for migrant passerines, and the nearby heathy open area which was best for watching thousands of migrating raptors.
There has been a Bird Observatory at Falsterbo since 1947 and over a million birds have been ringed there. Follow link to see more about the Obs http://www.falsterbofagelstation.se/index_e.html
And now for some of those birds of prey, starting with the most numerous, which were Sparrowhawks, which were passing over in their hundreds.
Smaller numbers of Common Buzzard, Red Kite, Kestrel and Osprey, a few Rough-legged Buzzards and a good record of Spotted Eagle.
