Another trip down to fair Österlen via Alvesta. Spring is still late, but a number of late migrants started to arrive on the last days.
A chilly Spring this year. I started attending a second Tuesday (early morning) club, out on the Mälarö islands (MOF in photo captions below). We also had a short visit to the island of Gotland over Easter. But now it’s time to start packing for the trip down to the Österlen in the south of Sweden for the next two weeks.
The sunniest March ever with minimal rain/snow and with Spring approaching. An increasing number of larger migratory birds, but the smaller ones have mostly avoided my camera this far.
Another pretty miserable month but with a good number of days with fair weather.
January turned out better than expected, so I’m back with a few photos.
Another slow month for birding. Not that there are not any, but with dusk almost immediately following dawn, there is not much light to shoot in. And we have had couple of cold spells, with temparatures down to -16 C. And than a man cold put an to this month.
Another quiet month with more of the same to come. Now at the end of November temperatues are below the freezing point but the snow has yet to arrive.
Many migratory birds have now left the country, but some are still on the move. We’ve had the occassional frost night, but also a number of beatiful fall days. I managed to join two of the Tuesday club outings, but now that’s closed down for the season.
Fall is arriving and migratory birds are leaving. So, a quiet month for my bird photography. Let’s see what October brings when trees are shedding their leaves and it will be easier to spot the elusive ones.
