Winter strikes back
19:th of March 2008
After a mild period, winter strikes back with some snow and cold, starry nights. A tour around the valley starts with Hawfinches and Bullfinches on my feeding station in the south.
Here at Färdskär, Haraker, I find a flock of Jackdaws feeding on a ploughed field, several of which have pretty striking white collars.
Could be eastern birds from Russia.
The following 4 pictures are from the same day, showing how different it may look in this relatively small area. Yes, by the way, the first Smew of the year appears by a couple of Goosanders in Lake Hällsjön.
