A month that stareted out very hot, humid and sunny and ended as Fall with cool temperatures and showers. Very few insects this summer, meaning certain birds have had food issues. A the bird flu has taken its toll too.
July has been cooler than last year and we spent a couple of weeks at the island of Gotland and visited some new places.
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.
nd Bergqvara gård outside Växjö as well as Äspet (Åhus), Hallamölla vattenfall (Brösarp), Norrekås, Gislövshammar and Brantevik.
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.
Another trip down to the south east of Sweden and Brantevik. A short stop outside Alvesta on the way.
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.
