Luck turns

23:rd of February
After quite a struggle in the forests of Färna Ekopark, we finally encounter the much wanted Three-toed Woodpecker, a female quietly feeding in the flooded forest. The sunlaping part of the group meanwhile got rewarded with excellent views on a male Capercaillie, flying right towards us really close over a clearing.
   Luck seem to go with the flow, since next stop offers 2 juvenile Golden Eagles together with 3 White-tailed Eagles.
   At sunset the group spots a Moose and then we don´t have to wait long for the Pygmy Owl to come out and great us.
As we leave some fish for Eagle-food to a local hunter, he shows us the skin of a Lynx that got shot near Fläckebo a couple of years ago. 
     Gives the impression of size and beauty of this amazing beast.
