After that drab May, June has been very warm for Sweden. Often too hot for both me and the birds. With 35% of adult Swedes now vaccinated and the virus retreating, I hope the bird hikes will soon pick up again.
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.
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.
A road trip took us southward for a week in Brantevik, Österlen with short visits in Alvesta and Gusum. We kept our social distancing, except for the birds of course.
