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.

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 two week trip down to Brantevik via Alvesta. Our first week was mainly chilly, windy wet, but the weather picked up and the next batch of migratory birds started to arrive. I’m especially happy for getting good images of the Nightingale.
With the Covid-19 virus still going, we did not go on any larger excursions. Mainly brought the camera on dog-walks.
