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.
A wintery start of March turned into a Spring (almost), at least occasionally. I have seen he first returning and northward bound birds.
Another trip down to the south east of Sweden and Brantevik. A short stop outside Alvesta on the way.
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.
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.
