Another trip down to the south east of Sweden and Brantevik. A short stop outside Alvesta on the way.
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).
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.
Back in Stockholm and the areas around home. With the Tuesday club postponed due to Covid-19, mostly solo excursions. But I did find a group that still does trips (in small groups) and although it visited my home woods, I did get a better picture of the European crested tit.
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.
