May (the 2nd half), 2021

In between heavy rain days, Spring has finally arrived and thus allowing me to visit a number of local bird sanctuaries.

Another two week trip down to Brantevik via Alvesta. Our first week was mainly chilly, windy wet, but the weather picked up and the next batch of migratory birds started to arrive. I’m especially happy for getting good images of the Nightingale.

April, 2021

Wish I could say Spring was here for real, but there has been night frost, low temperatures and northern winds lately. That said, the early migratory birds are showing up and the blackbirds and robins are singing.

March, 2021

A wintery start of March turned into a Spring (almost), at least occasionally. I have seen he first returning and northward bound birds.

September, 2020

After the trip to Österlen, had a shorter stay at the son-in-law’s place at lake Yxningen. Was supposed to spend a week in the Outer Hebrides (Scotland), but Covid-19 made the travel agency go bust, the flights be canceled and us not feeling like traveling abroad.
Also went on a excursion with Fågelguidning to the Sandemar nature reserve.

July, 2020

A quiet month for bird watching, but got lucky with the Goshawk family and a couple of bird I had not been able to photograph before.

June, 2020

With the Covid-19 virus still going, we did not go on any larger excursions. Mainly brought the camera on dog-walks.

The rest of May, 2020

Back in Stockholm and the areas around home. With the Tuesday club postponed due to Covid-19, mostly solo excursions. But I did find a group that still does trips (in small groups) and although it visited my home woods, I did get a better picture of the European crested tit.

April 2020

An unusually warm April got me out in nature a lot. Temperatures peaked at 20C, but now at the end of the month there is sleet. Here in Sweden we are encouraged to enjoy nature, despite the Corona virus, but to keep social distance – perfect for birding. The Tuesday club has been postponed, as has all other events.
