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.
Winter has arrived, with snow and cold. With limited travel, predominately birds spotted at feeders this month.
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.
Another wet, dreary, Covid-restricted month.
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.
