Caspian Plover - a first for Sweden

Yesterday a Caspian Plover (Charadrius asiaticus) was found on Mörkö, Södermanland (roughly 60 km south of Stockholm). The bird was present throughout today as well feeding actively in the same field allowing views down to 25-30 meters. This is the first record in Sweden and only the day before yesterday one (same?) bird was seen in Finland. This Asian bird is very rare in Europe and one bird was also seen in Holland in january this year.

Hawk Owls linger

Even if spring have arrived to these latitudes, Northern Hawk owls - normally a winter visitor - seem to linger in the area. One bird was reported today. This one I photographed last week.
