Our new feeding station for Rough-legged Buzzards (and photo hide) got a kick-start to the season when swiss photographer Pascal Favre visited us and got some really nice pictures of this beautiful and showy raptor. To our knowledge this might be the only feeding operation for this northern raptor in the world! Welcome to visit Birdsafarisweden in the Black River Valley for some Winter raptor photography! See more of Pascal´s excellent work from his week in sweden on his own webpage http://www.pascalfavre.com/SuèdeSweden/2017/

Since about a year back, theres´s been reports of tracks and droppings from Wolves in the Black River area again. There are at least 6 wolf territories in the county Västmanland, but all are west of us. This is the first time a wolf has been documented in the area for several years. Pictures by Alf Johansson (5) and Ulf Broberg (1-4).

The Osprey photography season is nearing it´s end but yesterday they were really at it. Several times we had 5-6 Ospreys around the boat, eager to catch the fish (local bream) that we throw them. We believe this is the only operation in Europe where you get such great possibilities to photograph fishing Ospreys at close range on an open lake. Young, talented photographer Simon Green, got some nice pictures.

For the 2.nd summer I found Hornet Moths (Sesia apiformis) in my garden in Fläckebo. These creatures look like wasps or hornets but are in fact Moths in disguise. They lay their eggs under the bark of poplar trees. It can take them up to three years to develop from egg, through larvae and pupae to full imago. This is the third species of Clearwing Moths I have encountered in the garden this summer.
