I am coming to the end of my 7 and a bit weeks at Kvismare fågelstation in Sweden and thought I'd share some of my ringing highlights from the last month and a half.
Non-ringing highlights have been 6000+ Common Crane, daily White-tailed Eagles, flock of 9 Temminck's Stint, Red-throated Pipit, Black Kite, Montague's Harrier, Continental race of Coal Tit, Nuthatch and Long-tailed Tit. In addition I have also enjoyed view of Beaver, Moose, Wolves and heard a big male Lynx.

An incredible experience and I hope you enjoy the photos. I have been updating my blog every day, so if you would like to see more, please read my blog -
