The Sweden in autumn trip (with Naturetrek) resulted in encounters with Nutcrackers, Pygmy Owl, Short-eared Owl and Woodpeckers of 6 species including Three-toed,Black and Grey-headed Woodpecker. No less than 14.000 Common Cranes offeredspectacular evening events when they flew into roost at night. Lesser White-fronted Geese where seen among many thousands of Bean, Greylag and Barnacles. At the bird observatory in Kvismaren we got served with Bluethroats and a late Great Reed Warbler. Among interesting insects several Migrant Hawkers, Clifden Nonpareil moths and Camberwell Beauties where the highlights. A bonus was the Pectoral Sandpiper on the last day - a rare bird in Sweden too.
