nd Bergqvara gård outside Växjö as well as Äspet (Åhus), Hallamölla vattenfall (Brösarp), Norrekås, Gislövshammar and Brantevik.
This post is dominated by our trip to island of Gotland, southeast of Stockholm. I’m not happy about the quality of the photos in general, blaming the often long distance, the hot weather (heat haze) and strong sun. I shoulld of course have been out early or late instead of mid day. That said, six new X’s was nice to achieve.
In between heavy rain days, Spring has finally arrived and thus allowing me to visit a number of local bird sanctuaries.
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 wet, dreary, Covid-restricted month.
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.
