The Tuesday club has started up and I’ve been on a trip up north as well as brought the camera out bit more.
Tag: Koltrast (Turdus merula; Common blackbird)
Not much happening this time of the year. Lakes are often frozen over and many species are on vacation in warmer climate.
Another uninspered month. Have to get up early in the morning and join the bird watchers more often.
July has been cooler than last year and we spent a couple of weeks at the island of Gotland and visited some new places.
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.
April-May 2022, Alvesta & Österlen
Another trip down to fair Österlen via Alvesta. Spring is still late, but a number of late migrants started to arrive on the last days.
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.
Another quiet month with more of the same to come. Now at the end of November temperatues are below the freezing point but the snow has yet to arrive.
Many migratory birds have now left the country, but some are still on the move. We’ve had the occassional frost night, but also a number of beatiful fall days. I managed to join two of the Tuesday club outings, but now that’s closed down for the season.
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.
