And then came spring
1:st of April 2009
So after a long, cold, snowy winter we finally get to feel warmth and sunshine and listen to quires of hundreds of singing birds (Whooper Swans). Today we suffer in the cold, early morning as we watch at least 22 displaying Black Grouse cocks. But as we put ourselves to rest at Näs, Fläcksjön, the temperature rises as we lean back towards the lea side of the barn. Some nice birds appear like 2 Rough-legged Buzzards, 2-3 White-tailed Eagles and the first Grey Wagtail.
It is also especially joyful to see the first Butterflies of the year. A Small Tortoiseshell is the first one out. Finally!
