2:nd of December 2011
Last day´s birding for Matt and Lauren (US) starts with a Great Grey Shrike who´s eating from his own store, a vole staked up on a twig (quite a morbid but rare thing to see), followed by 2 White-tailed Eagles at Lake Fläcksjön. Near Stockholm we manage to see a day roosting Ural Owl in a very dense pine tree and a much more showy Water Rail at Råstasjön. I must admit I haven´t seen Water rail this good for many years. And what a tame bird. Max Green took the rail pictures. See more of his excellent work on http://skogn.tumblr.com/
