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.

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.
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 trip down to the south east of Sweden and Brantevik. A short stop outside Alvesta on the way.
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.
