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.
Winter has arrived, with snow and cold. With limited travel, predominately birds spotted at feeders this month.
A quiet month for bird watching, but got lucky with the Goshawk family and a couple of bird I had not been able to photograph before.
With the Covid-19 virus still going, we did not go on any larger excursions. Mainly brought the camera on dog-walks.
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.
An unusually warm April got me out in nature a lot. Temperatures peaked at 20C, but now at the end of the month there is sleet. Here in Sweden we are encouraged to enjoy nature, despite the Corona virus, but to keep social distance – perfect for birding. The Tuesday club has been postponed, as has all other events.
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.
