October, 2020

A slow month for birding. The excursions came to the regular winter pause, the weather was worthless and my usual suspects have migrated. Further I did not do any travel. (Not to mention Covid-19.)

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.

Northern Goshawks (Duvhökar)

I know, you are not supposed to disturb nesting birds, but I happened upon the below close to a path through the woods. I will not mention were to reduce further disturbance. As the young ones seemed to recently have learnt to fly, they are probably 40+ days old.

March, 2020

Another almost snow free winter with mild temperatures. Now, in March, I have started visiting the bird areas that are a bit more remote (but still in the wider Stockholm area). The early migrants are starting to appear.
