Weather

Sweden in April and May, could be summer and it can be winter, or anything in between. In the South I hope to have sunshine and the summer in good progress. And I might be lucky Skåne and Öland and I can walk around in shorts and shirt. But it can as well be winter and I need to pack a lot of clothes this time.

And coming to Skåne and Öland I might be lucky and I can walk around in shorts and shirt. But it can as well be winter and I need to pack a lot of clothes this time.

Weather in the spring

Visiting in the spring time and you really need to pack a huge bag. In the morning it is below zero so I have packed full winter equipment, parka jacket, warm hat and gloves. And of course warm socks. In the late morning you will have to change the winter clothing to “spring” clothing, a wind breaker.

If it is sunshine the temperature is easily reaching 20°C at lunch time and that can easily be almost 30°C. If you have a car it is no problem, just keep everything in the car and change as the day proceeds and you ae ready for any weather changes you will run in to.

Collins Bird Guide

The Collins Bird Guide is a field guide to the birds of the Western Palearctic.

Its authors are Lars Svensson, Killian Mullarney, Dan Zetterström and Peter J. Grant, and it is illustrated by Killian Mullarney and Dan Zetterström (with two plates of North American passerines contributed by Larry McQueen). It has been described as "undoubtedly the finest field guide that has ever been produced", and "the last great bird book of the 20th century".

It was originally published in Swedish and Danish in 1999, and in English in hardback in the same year, and later in paperback. A large-format English edition has also been produced, as has a German and Dutch edition. The first edition was translated to 14 European languages, including Spanish, Portuguese, French, Dutch and German.

A second edition, revised and enlarged, was published in January 2010. A series of updates and corrections were made in 2015, with no change to the edition number.

The cover of the first edition, in all formats, depicts a barn owl. On the second edition, this was replaced by an arctic tern.

Collins Bird Guide
Cover of the first edition
Fair use, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?curid=15538546


Eleven pages of introductory material are followed by the book's main content: 366 pages of text and colour paintings. The text for each species gives brief status notes, followed by a section detailing identification, and concludes with a section on voice. Accompanying most species accounts is a small colour map showing breeding, wintering and migrant range.

The guide is also available as a paid-for app, for iPhone and Android devices. The app includes all of the text and images from the print edition, as well as audio recordings. Additional data can be bought separately; the first such package being a set of distribution maps for 271 species, from the British Trust for Ornithology's Bird Atlas 2007–11.

All versions cover Europe, North Atlantic islands, much of North Africa and the Middle East.

Most of the species covered in the main part of the guide are regular breeding, wintering or migrant species in its area of coverage, although some vagrants are also included. There are additional sections giving brief accounts of (a) vagrants and (b) introduced breeding species and species recorded only as escapes.

Many bird watchers around the world know this book simply as “The Svensson”

Places to visit

Österlen


Österlen

is a regional of the southeastern part of the Swedish province of Scania.

History
The name derives from its location 'east of the route' (ancient route from Ystad, heading north-east); Öster om len (len is short for leden, i.e. route). The descriptive term Österlen is associated with the writings of Nils Lovén (1796-1858) who was a clergyman and university professor as well as an author.

Use of the term Österlen was popularized during the 1920s by author Fritiof Nilsson Piraten (1895–1972), poet Pehr Theodor Tufvesson (1884-1947) and newspaper journalist John Oskar Osterman (1871-1942). Many songs and poems have been written about Österlen. One of the most popular songs is Om himlen och Österlen, composed by Scanian singer-songwriter Michael Saxell.

Österlen was defined in 1929 as including Albo härad, Ingelstad härad and Järrestad härad in the southeastern part of the Scania. Today the term is associated with Tomelilla Municipality, Ystad Municipality and Simrishamn Municipality The area is a tourist destination known for its natural environment, historic buildings, small towns and farmland. Österlen encompasses the cities of Simrishamn and Tomelilla as well as including Stenshuvud National Park.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Discover the wonderful Österlen with its rolling meadows and picturesque communities. The concept Österlen is not even one hundred years but its content goes way back. No one really knows where the limit of Österlen is but generally speaking one can say it is the southeast Skåne where among others Simrishamn, Tomelilla, Kristianstad, Bromölla, and Ystad are included.

The nature in Österlen is the backbone of its charm, a haven for friends of nature who want to partake of the nature reserve's trails and outdoor activities to admire its flora and fauna. There are a wide variety of bird species that attract birdwatchers from far and beyond.

I want to visit the below areas:

Ravlundafältet
Haväng
Stenshuvud National Park
Hammar / Kåseberga
Fyledalen


Ravlundafältet

Leave road #9 just south of Brösarp and drive down towards the sea. At the end of the road you turn left to enter Ravlundafältet and continue straight for the parking at Haväng. Military training field open when there is no exercises. Drive along open fields keeping your eyes out for birds. It is a famous place for bird watching, but as you can see on the pictures below it was almost zero visibility so I didn´t see many birds.

Haväng

Haväng and Vitemölla beach slopes is a nature reserve between Verkeån and Vitemölla. The lime in the soil, together with the dry climate created conditions for one of Sweden's rarest habitats, sandy steppe. Here you will find many of sandstäppens typical species - koeleria glauca, sand lily , sand carnation and sandvedel.

In high summer lit beach slopes of yellow and violet of helichrysum , yellow stonecrop , thyme and fältvädd . It also enjoys a variety of butterflies.

There is a huge parking area and a hostel. Parking the car and I walk down towards the sand beach expecting to turn around after a little bit of walking because of the sand. Pleasantly surprised, there is board walks over the sand and you walk down to the bridge crossing the river.

There was a lot of people so the birds were scared away. The board walk comes to an end when you have crossed the river.

Stenshuvud National Park

Stenshuvud National Park

Stenshuvud is a hill in the south-eastern corner of Sweden, in the province of Scania, close to Kivik in Simrishamn Municipality. Since 1986, it is one of the National parks of Sweden. The park covers an area of about 3.9 km2.

The hill is 97 m high and faces the Baltic Sea. Since the surrounding landscape is relatively flat, it can be seen from a great distance and has traditionally been used as a landmark for seafarers. Many visitors trek up the hill to enjoy the view which is very good in clear weather.

Most of the area is covered with broadleaf forest, especially European hornbeam. The park also contains heaths, meadows and swamps. Because of the mild climate and varied habitats, many different animal and plant species can be encountered in the park.

The park contains unusual Swedish wildlife such as the hazel dormouse, Eurasian golden oriole, European tree frog and agile frog. There are about 600 vascular plant species, including several types of orchids and the very rare barren strawberry.

Below the hill there is a popular beach for swimming. Close to the top are the remains of a ruin of a 5th- or 6th-century fortress.

According to local folklore, the hill got its name ("Sten's head") from a giant living in the cave Giddastuan.

Stenshuvud National Park

There is a huge parking area at Naturum Visitor Center. There is 5 coloured walking trails in the park and as soon as you are behind the visitor centre you are in the beautiful forest. And I could hear a lot of birds. And of course, there was a lot of people and the birds was disturbed even though I was “off track”

Almost at the top and now the sign says that there is 3 different heads, North, East and the South Head. Well, continue straight up and you will reach the look out. The last 25 meters or so it is almost climbing to reach the top, well, easy climbing and if you are young it is an ordinary stroll up the hill.

It was a nice walk and a beautiful forest and there were quite a lot of birds even though the trails was full of visitors. Maybe better to be here early morning.

Hammar / Kåseberga

Kåseberga and the famous Ale Stenar is found at the SE point of Skåne. Hammar is just a few KM west of Kåseberga. Both the places are BIRDING HOTSPOTS at eBird and the reason for me to go there. Approaching from east and I started in Hammar. Turn right and there is a parking and from there it is walking only down towards the beach.

Turning left at the intersection coming in to Hammar and you drive along the fields and there are many Seagulls feeding. So if you´re looking for Gulls it is well worth a visit.

Hammar / Kåseberga

Kåseberga and you are not allowed to park in the village. But there is a parking when entering the village and you can walk from there. Sea birds etc. in the area around the marina. Of course, this area is for when the weather is good.

Fyledalen

Fyledalen is a few hundred meters wide, at some places significantly more, around 50 meters deep and strechtes like an arc from southeast of Sjöbo towards Tomelilla and onwards south to Allevad by road 19. Fyledalen is a nature reserve famous for the Sea and Golden eagles. In winter, this is the best place in Europe to see birds of prey, particularly eagles.

Varied bird life. In winter, this is the best place in Europe to see birds of prey, particularly eagles. And you can also spot mammals in the area, such as: Fallow deer, roe deer, red deer, elk, wild boar and fox. In winter, this is the best place in Europe to see birds of prey, particularly eagles.

Reaching the parking

Driving along Road #11 or #19 and there are signs when to turn off the road to Fyledalsvägen (Fyledal Road) And driving along Fyledalsvägen (Fyledal Road) and you have a stream along the road. I spotted several Grey Herons and ducks on the water.

Fyledalen is a very beautiful area and I was really enjoying the area. BUT, you cannot reach the stream, you cannot leave the roads and trails going towards the stream and this was a big disappointment. I never took any pictures of the birds around the water as I had planned to go back there from the parking.

So no pictures as I could not get to the water. But there are trails and dust roads (walking/ biking only) you can walk on and I spotted a lot of birds.

From the parking it is walking only

There is a lot of people coming here for jogging. Also a lot of people coming to walk their dogs etc. So it can be a wee bit crowded. But if you come early morning on a weekday it should be OK.

Bird checklist

I never use any bird lists, but since I try to make it in to Cloudbirders. A very helpful site when planning your birding trips. And if I use their service, of course I want to contribute as well.

Well, my bird watching trip reports was rejected. I posted 2 that was rejected. So I started to take ideas from the reports I found on Cloudbirders. They have Bird checklists so I will put them here but they will not be used as bird checklists. I will post my birds on eBird and on my different “BIRDS THAT I HAVE OBSERVED” pages.

But the list can come in handy to find out the local name of the bird etc. And Avibase have a list with pictures and sounds, excellent!

So I will post bird checklists here and if my Guides provide me with checklists I will also post them here.

Avibase - Bird Checklists of the World

Skåne bird checklist from Avibase, click HERE

Avibase is providing you with bird checklists from all over the world. And I´m impressed by their web page. Select country and area and you get the bird checklist. Like the PDF files I got from Avibase on the links above. You also get the checklist with pictures and sounds.

The best part is that you get the local names of the birds and the online checklist gives the names in English plus the language you have selected. But it seems like the PDF cannot handle some alphabet.

For example the Japanese language so it is blank in the PDF checklist. But it worked excellent with Swedish. But you get them in the local language on the online version.


Bird list

I only listed birds I have got on picture before I started with eBird in November 2019. Now I record all the birds that I can identify. Before that see the DAY TO DAY reports and my lists of observed birds in different countries.

And you can visit my list of “Birds I have seen in Sweden

Today´s Track


Leaving Äspet Nature Reserve and I drive south to look for Ravlundafältet. I arrive to the entrance at Haväng and I enter the Military training field and I could not see much on the fields as it was foggy and almost zero visibility.

Ravlundafältet and I keep an eye out for Orioles, but I could not even see the trees through the fog.

I gave up on Ravlundafältet after about 30 minutes and I drove back to Haväng. Coming all the way to Skåne and all I get is fog. And I had not any high hopes to see much more at Havång.


Haväng

Today´s Track


Parking the car and I walk past the Havängsdösen walking towards the beach. Still dense fog and I cannot see many birds. And there is also many visitors walking around scaring away the birds. I was happy to discover board walks over the sand dunes and it was quite nice to walk around.

No birds on the beach and some small birds at the river but no pictures. I could hear birds but the visibility was at least to say poor. So it was not with a great pleasure I walked around.

Walking back to the car and I see one Common Redstart that I try to get on picture. Otherwise there was nothing exciting to see. So I left Haväng and putting the parking lot behind me and I spotted a White stork at Ravlunda.

I stopped to watch the stork and after a few minutes there was a second stork coming in to land next to the other stork. A couple? Babies this year? I think it is too late for babies this year.

I left the storks behind and I continued to the south to have a look at Stenshuvud National Park. Took me about 30 minutes to reach the parking lot at Stenshuvud National Park. The weather had improved a little, still foggy but I hope to be able to get some bird pictures in the National Park.

The coast line of Österlen is really beautiful with the old villages and gorgeous scenery and I enjoyed the 30 minutes it took me to drive to the National Park, the last bird watching site for today.


Stenshuvud National Park

Parking at Naturums parking and I followed the signs toward the peak Stenshuvud. There was many many visitors, bad for bird watching but good for my diet. I skipped going inside to buy an ice-cream thanks to all the visitors.

I started to walk towards the peak and I wandering off the trail to check out a Song Thrush and even though I was “off track” I could hear people and children.

I could see one Eurasian Treecreeper my way up to the peak but the pictures turned out to be nothing like garbage.

Reaching the peak and it is impossible to see anything because of the fog. Well, I was not really disappointed, I´m here to look for birds (disappointed) and not the views. Walking back down to the parking and I spotted one Blackbird, otherwise nothing of interest from the bird world.

Spending all the money to come here for birding and all I get is fog. Will it be better tomorrow? I hope so, really or it has been a complete waste of time. Anyway, one more night on Österlen and I will drive south tomorrow morning starting to look for birds in the SE corner of Skåne and I will stay the night at the SW corner of Skåne.

+++++++++++++++
Sunday 19th of May 2019
and my alarm went off at 3 thirty and I left the room around 5 o´clock in the morning and I brought my luggage with me and I left with no backward glimpses. I will most likely never stay at this hotel again.

Checking eBird and I will start the day at Hammar / Kåseberga, two different birding HOT SPOTS in eBird, but it is, well, I call it one place as it is very close to each other.

I pass Hammar and it is a small village and farms outside the village. I stop to try my luck. I spotted a Western Yellow Wagtail next to the road and I managed to get a picture through the window. The Yellow Wagtail is really a very beautiful bird and there are many of them around. I see them all the time, but I´m not so lucky with the pictures.

Huge fields with different gulls but they were too far away for any pictures and proper identification for me as an amateur bird watcher. I drove around looking for gulls closer to the road, but no luck.

I spotted some wagtails at the parking at the trail down to the beach. And the weather was for sure not allowing me to get out of the car. How unlucky I have been since I arrived, well, since I left Öland. Nothing but rain, fog and strong winds.

It is really a very beautiful area so I would have loved to walk around for a while. Kåseberga harbour and, sweet Lord. It was blowing so hard the car almost blew in to the sea.

I decided to leave to start driving towards west with a stop at Fyledalen before leaving Österlen. I drive slowly towards Tomelilla looking for birds on the way. Fyledalen is an area just west of Tomelilla and I drove along the road and suddenly, a sign saying FYLEDALEN and you are there.

Driving along the stream “Fyleån” and I see a lot of birds and two Grey Herons. So I will walk along the stream to look for birds as soon as I find a parking space. I found the parking area and I walked down towards the stream. Fence around the meadows so it was not possible to get down to the stream.

I turned around and I walked to the road that was used as a jogging track and some people came jogging by when I was walking along the track looking for birds.

I didn´t see any birds until I started to walk back towards the car. Then I spotted several warblers and a Eurasian Treecreeper. I followed a Great Spotted Woodpecker sitting on the wood posts to the fence. The bird jumped to the next wood post and I followed the bird.

When I followed the woodpecker to a tree I discovered a Common Whitethroat in the tree. A family arrived with a car and I could see that the man was a bird watcher. I went to speak with him and he told me about a very rare Tern that was reported at Vombsjön (Lake Vomb) at Björkaåns utlopp (The mouth of River Björka)

I thanked him for the hot tip and I left Fyledalen and Österlen driving towards Lake Vomb in the “The Avian Kingdom”
