Weather; Cloudy morning. Sun and calm afternoon

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?

Fältsäsongen 2014 har startat

Nu har fågelstationens personal börjat anlända, och därmed drar årets fältsäsong igång. Först på plats var Teresa Montras Janér från Spanien som anlände häromdagen. Hon är redan bekant med området eftersom hon arbetade hela förra säsongen. Under dagen har också Torben och Lena anlänt från Tyskland. Personalen kommer dra igång säsongen med kärrhöksstudier och våtmarksinventeringar.

Bemanningsläget vid fågelstationen är mycket bra med i det närmaste full täckning i fram till september.
