2021 September

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.

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.

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.

Well, this month has not been much better than the previous ones. We’ve has a wee bit of snow for two days, otherwise overcast and rain. So I have not been too inspired to photograph birds.

October, 2020

A slow month for birding. The excursions came to the regular winter pause, the weather was worthless and my usual suspects have migrated. Further I did not do any travel. (Not to mention Covid-19.)

After the trip to Österlen, had a shorter stay at the son-in-law’s place at lake Yxningen. Was supposed to spend a week in the Outer Hebrides (Scotland), but Covid-19 made the travel agency go bust, the flights be canceled and us not feeling like traveling abroad.
Also went on a excursion with Fågelguidning to the Sandemar nature reserve.

April 2020

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.
