Personel; TMJ, TLR and LSS

Weather; Sunny and blue sky, with a gentle E-NE breeze

Projects; Marsh Harrier nests


10 Marsh Harrier nests! Although 2 of them could just be roosting platfforms and will need to be checked in the next days, there are 3-4 more pairs holding territories that have not started building yet. Very promising numbers.


So, we had fun in a busy but successful day, looking for nests and checking new territories.


See you in the next post!!!

Happy Easter everybody!


Personel; TMJ, TLR, LSS

Weather; Sunny and warm all day with just a light breeze.

Projects; Marsh Harrier Nests


This beautiful Easter Sunday was dominated by Marsh Harriers! In the morning we were searching for their nests at Nyängen, Fågelsjön and Åslasjön. After this nice morning session, we followed a tradition that can’t be lacking on this day… the Easter egg hunt! We only had three eggs, so everyone had just one egg to find but they were well hidden.

Marsh harriers. This is the main project we are working on at the moment. A new 'wave' of females seems to be arrived at Kvismaren and today there were more females around. With a few pairs displaying and another one building nest, things are getting interesting. How many nests will be in Kvismaren this year?
