Last crane-evening

Friday night might just have been this season´s last major Crane evening at Lake Fläcksjön. Probably the most colorful sunset sky this autumn and the Cranes (at least 450) coming in to roost while the sky was still good. Tomorrow northerly winds are due to come and that usually means most Cranes take the opportunity to go south with a good tail wind.

Red Deer in rut

It was a very atmospheric night with the roars from rutting Red Deer under a rising full moon and a stroke of mist over the meadows. I heard roaring stags from at least five positions at the same time and saw a couple of more animals. These calls are so powerful and raw, it´s like a mix of Elephants and Wolves. Imagine that!

Hoopoe visit

Hoopoe (Upupa epops) is a rare bird in central Sweden so it was really enjoyable to see this one who appeared in a garden area outside town last week.
