A quiet month this far – awaiting a trip to Österlen in the south of Sweden.
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.
After the trip to Österlen, had a shorter stay at the son-in-law’s place at lake Yxningen. Was supposed to spend a week in the Outer Hebrides (Scotland), but Covid-19 made the travel agency go bust, the flights be canceled and us not feeling like traveling abroad.
Also went on a excursion with Fågelguidning to the Sandemar nature reserve.
A good month for waders as they are on the move south. I got two new birds on photo (Water rail and Common greenshank), and one first captured in Sweden (Great egret).
Gräsand (Anas platyrhynchos; Mallard)
Snatterand (Mareca strepera / Anas strepera; Gadwall)
Skedand (Spatula clypeata / Anas clypeata; Northern shoveler)
Kricka (Anas crecca; Eurasian teal)
