nd Bergqvara gård outside Växjö as well as Äspet (Åhus), Hallamölla vattenfall (Brösarp), Norrekås, Gislövshammar and Brantevik.
After that drab May, June has been very warm for Sweden. Often too hot for both me and the birds. With 35% of adult Swedes now vaccinated and the virus retreating, I hope the bird hikes will soon pick up again.
Another trip down to the south east of Sweden and Brantevik. A short stop outside Alvesta on the way.
