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.
Fall is arriving and migratory birds are leaving. So, a quiet month for my bird photography. Let’s see what October brings when trees are shedding their leaves and it will be easier to spot the elusive ones.
In between heavy rain days, Spring has finally arrived and thus allowing me to visit a number of local bird sanctuaries.
Another wet, dreary, Covid-restricted month.
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.
