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 😟

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.

Eileen, the Costa Rica trip I was on was actually because of you. I had seen your shots from Costa Rica. Right now I am posting the trip on Instagram, both the Travel and Bird accounts, see the list  below, soo many memories pop up. It is amazing how much you remember when you see the shots you took many years ago. :)

The beautiful cat

I met this one yesterday. I saw it first time as a kitty, I think 4 years ago. It has blue eyes. I rarely see her. But every time she says "hello". It is hard to photograph her as she tends to stroke my legs as cats do. I wish I knew what her eyes are telling me!

As much as I like this cat I don´t want her at home. Both my arms and legs was full of white fur. And I am a bit allergic to animals.
