The sunniest March ever with minimal rain/snow and with Spring approaching. An increasing number of larger migratory birds, but the smaller ones have mostly avoided my camera this far.

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.
Wish I could say Spring was here for real, but there has been night frost, low temperatures and northern winds lately. That said, the early migratory birds are showing up and the blackbirds and robins are singing.
Another trip down to the south east of Sweden and Brantevik. A short stop outside Alvesta on the way.
