Autumn with Naturetrek

The Sweden in autumn trip (with Naturetrek) resulted in encounters with Nutcrackers, Pygmy Owl, Short-eared Owl and Woodpeckers of 6 species including Three-toed,Black and Grey-headed Woodpecker. No less than 14.000 Common Cranes offered
spectacular evening events when they flew into roost at night. Lesser
White-fronted Geese where seen among many thousands of Bean, Greylag and
Barnacles. At the bird observatory in Kvismaren we got served with
Bluethroats and a late Great Reed Warbler. Among interesting insects
several Migrant Hawkers, Clifden Nonpareil moths and Camberwell Beauties
where the highlights. A bonus was the Pectoral Sandpiper on the last day -
a rare bird in Sweden too.
