Thursday night, brilliant weather and the young Lynx shows well on the northern part of the meadw for a good while. Stretching, yawning, lazing, stalking some potential prey and just posing. The 2.nd Naturetrek-group this spring get excellent views.

The first dragonfly this year surprises me in the garden as I saw potatoes. Usually I see these by the lake… Downy Emerald (Cordulia aenea – Guldtrollslända). 4 new Warblers for the year sing in the garden today, Whitethroat, Lesser Whitethroat, Garden– and Icterine Warbler.

A project to get this lovely moth – Lunar Marbled brown – on the canvas, scores. Vinterekspinnare in swedish (Drymonia ruficornis) flies in the Oak tree canopies, so we found a little mountiantop where we got the right elevation. Lovely warm night with +14° C at 01.00. Tawny Owls calling around us too.

The british group from Naturetrek becomes the second english group this month (and year) to see a Lynx performing a lovely evening out in the forest. These handsome and wild cats are known to be among the hardest cats in the world to see live. I have now had the luck to see these animals on 4 different occasions lately.

The first night this year when I have time to put up a mercury lamp in my garden to attract some Moths. Only a few indivudals of 5 species are attracted but this is a god find and a new species to me and the garden: Scarce Prominent (Odontosia carmelita) - Björkflikvinge in swedish.
