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.

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.

Fiskgjusen och gäddan (The Osprey and the pike)

A trip to the Fysingen lake that is popular for waders, geese, etcetera. Among others we saw the first Barn swallow (Ladusvala), Redshank (Rödbena) and Oystercatcher (Strandskata) for the season but the highlight was the Osprey fishing and catching a pike. The distance was to long, so I missed the Eagle that interfered and made the Osprey drop its prey over the woods.
