Critters on my walks

 This cat never likes my attention ūüėĄ I´m not sure of it´s gender but I like it´s color.

Not sure what species this is, but I like this color too. I might call it Rusty!

Fallow deer.
Now I know where these guys are and what time they are usually there. But sneaking up on them without being seen, is hard as they are at the far side of the field.
I was finally spotted and the herd went into the forest. Except for one. This deer was watching me for about 15 min before it left too. It seemed like it was standing guard as I could hear them communicate. It was very interesting

Dogs and birds

I was out for a walk, but these guys was jogging and passing me by.


Eurasian Jay - Nötskrika
They are usually noisy, but this one was alone and quiet.

Two grey wagtails juv are still here. They should have been gone by now. It is close to zero and they need to go south. - Forsärla

Across the small lake I noticed a grey heron.
I have not seen much of them this season so quite a rare sight.

Birding at Vännervass

 Click image to enlarge!
The boardwalk to get to the lake and birding platform on the small island is narrow. Walking through the reeds seem to take forever and then comes an old forest. 
This place is on the far side of the lake and difficult to reach. You certainly don´t want to get dizzy here. 

Mute swan - Knölsvan

There was a few ducks. I could recognice mallards and Eurasian wigeon. Three years ago there was thousands of tehm resting here on the way south. But two years of draught changed everything ūüėü

This is mostly greylag geese. Frightened by two sea eagles.


 "cormorant village"

White-tailed eagle - Havsörn
Here are the two eagles that stirred up the seabirds. They sit in the trees used by cormorants for nesting. The cormorants are already gone and the nests are empty. It is good that the cormorants are nesting in this remote area of the (still) lake. People don´t need to be disturbed by them.
I really hope it will come more rain to rise the water level or this will be a wetland instead of lake.
