The Tuesday club has started up and I’ve been on a trip up north as well as brought the camera out bit more.
Not much happening this time of the year. Lakes are often frozen over and many species are on vacation in warmer climate.
A grayer and cooler month and been busy with other things than birding. But the the Bohemian waxwings came by on their yearly trip south. This year we lack rowan-berries, so apples had to do.
The Öland trip, 2022-10-06–09
A trip with “Tisdagsklubben” to the south of the Öland island in the middle of the migration season. A wonderful trip, that yielded eleven new “bildkryss” (species).
Another uninspered month. Have to get up early in the morning and join the bird watchers more often.
A month that stareted out very hot, humid and sunny and ended as Fall with cool temperatures and showers. Very few insects this summer, meaning certain birds have had food issues. A the bird flu has taken its toll too.
July has been cooler than last year and we spent a couple of weeks at the island of Gotland and visited some new places.
A good month for capturing new species. I went on two boat exceusrions into the Stockholm archipelago and a family trip to Tuscany, Italy. The latter was a holiday, so I did not bring the serious camera gear, meaning the bird photos suffered. Sadly, I dd not get a shot of the Eurasian Scops Owl (Dvärguv), but we heard it every night.
May (the rest of), 2022
Not the most active period of the year for me after the trip to Österlen. Only a few outings with the camera.
April-May 2022, Alvesta & Österlen
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.
