Common Snipe (Gallinago gallinago)

Not unusual on Vpmb’s Ängar during late summer and early fall. The Common Snipe (Gallinago gallinago) is a very special bird to me with it´s textured plummage and the long bill. DSC_7126-1

Senses

One of the beautiful side effects of spotting birds: You experience amazing colours, smells and the silence of early morning. Even without birds flying around one can experience tranquility and deep joy.

Not so easy!

While stalking birds at Vomb’s ängar I saw a group of Barn swallows (Hirundo rustica) over a pond. They were going for water insects and it was amazing to see how they picked up the insects from the water at high speed. I decided to try to get pictures of this…well, it was not an easy task. a few hundred shots later most were out of focus or missed the birds completely. But I actually got a few decent images.DSC_6718-1

Below a sequence of a succesful catch:

Don’t mess with your neighbours!

Early summer is the prime breeding season in southern Sweden. No wonder everbody is somewhat touchy and irritable. And often the larger birds have to give way – or is it just patience with the little ones?

The first example: Black headed gull (Larus ridibundus) vs Great cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo).DSC_2860-1

Not any better for this beautiful Red Glead (Milvus milvus) under attack by terns, the Common tern (Sterna hirundo) and the far more exciting Black tern (Chlidonia niger). Guess who won the battle…
