A wintery start of March turned into a Spring (almost), at least occasionally. I have seen he first returning and northward bound birds.
Winter has arrived, with snow and cold. With limited travel, predominately birds spotted at feeders this month.
Well, this month has not been much better than the previous ones. We’ve has a wee bit of snow for two days, otherwise overcast and rain. So I have not been too inspired to photograph birds.
Another wet, dreary, Covid-restricted month.
Another trip down to the south east of Sweden and Brantevik. A short stop outside Alvesta on the way.
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.
A road trip took us southward for a week in Brantevik, Österlen with short visits in Alvesta and Gusum. We kept our social distancing, except for the birds of course.
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.
