A surprisingly wintery February, that in the last week exploded into Spring (+10C degrees in Stockholm and a record +17 in the south east).
Another trip down to the south east of Sweden and Brantevik. A short stop outside Alvesta on the way.
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.
