Not much happening this time of the year. Lakes are often frozen over and many species are on vacation in warmer climate.
Tag: Nötväcka (Sitta europaea; Eurasian nuthatch)
Another uninspered month. Have to get up early in the morning and join the bird watchers more often.
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.
May (the rest of), 2022
Not the most active period of the year for me after the trip to Österlen. Only a few outings with the camera.
A chilly Spring this year. I started attending a second Tuesday (early morning) club, out on the Mälarö islands (MOF in photo captions below). We also had a short visit to the island of Gotland over Easter. But now it’s time to start packing for the trip down to the Österlen in the south of Sweden for the next two weeks.
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.
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.

A quiet month this far – awaiting a trip to Österlen in the south of Sweden.
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.
