Cranes at Hjälstaviken

Hjälstaviken is a great place to spend an afternoon/evening this time of the year. Bearded Reedlings in the reed beds, loads of (thousands) Bean Geese, Barnacles and 15 or so less White-fronts. As a finale to the evening comes the Cranes. A loveley spectacle!

Don´t think I´ve ever seen a Camberwell Beauty as late as this. Must be a fenology record.

Hawk Owl influx

It got almost dark before we saw the Hawk Owl last night. Wasn´t very obliging either, but always a great bird to see and an unmistakable silhouette. There´s an unusually early influx in southern Sweden at the moment. They normally arrive as winter guests by mid november. Indication of a good winter bird & bird photo season coming up.

Autumn Eagles

Duller light and not more than 2 catches still produced a couple of ok shots this morning. A bit of autumn atmosphere for the first time this season.
