Great Snipe lek in the valley

9:th of May
Leking Great Snipes on Nötmyran in the Black River Valley appears only on spring migration and the last few years we haven´t had many reports, so it is quite satisfying to have 3 birds singing in front of us as we stand on the floodplains on a beautiful spring night.
   The picture was taken on last years mountain-trip where they start to display earlier in the evening and provide much better photo-opportunities on the alpine slopes.
