Sweden and a (bit) of Norway May 11th - 23rd 2006

  • If asked where in Scandinavia could you see: Great Grey, Ural, Hawk, Tengmalm’s & Pygmy Owls; Three-Toed, Grey-Headed and Black Woodpeckers; Wryneck, White-Tailed Eagle; Honey Buzzard; Pallid Harrier; Capercaillie; Black, Willow & Hazel Grouse; Caspian Tern; Great Snipe; Siberian Jay; Icterine Warbler, and Thrush Nightingale in one trip, Sweden may not be the first country to spring to mind....Geoff Dicker reports  

From Southern Sweden to Lapland July 2001

  • Generally, it was a windy month of July. No long periods of sunshine, but not too much rain either. But the wind often kept birds and animals hidden and difficult to observe. My main target species were Gyrfalcon, Moose and Whales; I managed to see them all during the first week; the rest I considered as a bonus! Ended up with 15 raptor species, all except Hen Harrier!...Lutz Lücker reports

Central Sweden Mon 20th to Thurs May 30th

  • Based in the Eurostop Hotel, at the junction of Sweden's two main roads the E18 and the E20, in the very pleasant city of Orebro in Narke county, we recorded 161 species over the ten days....John Bannon & Andre Morrall report.

Southern Sweden - In search of Owls Dec. 2000

  • Twitchable Pine Grosbeaks, Great Grey and Hawk Owls were all available in southern Sweden during the 2000/2001 winter. Remco Hofland reports on these, and introduces some other excellent birding sites in the area.

Southern Sweden - Oland and Falsterbo: Oct. 2000

  • As the sun broke through the raptor numbers began to build, Sparrowhawks and a sprinkling of Goshawks first; followed by gradually building numbers of Buzzards, both Common and Rough-legged. During the afternoon we moved up the east coast checking the fields for geese and cranes..Robin Griffiths reports

Sweden - Stockholm archipelago: July 2000

  • Most of our time was spent at our family house on the island of Tynningö which is in the Stockholm archipelago between Vaxholm and close to both Rindö and Värmdö. Parts of the island are still wild. In particular the area we own which is 48,000 square metres is mainly forest.. Other areas include a lake which has a water level about 10 or 12 metres above the surrounding sea level - this lake contains crayfish! - and there is a good wetland swamp area adjacent to it. Michael Watkins reports.

Northern Scandinavia June 13-28, 1998

  • In June 1998 I was finally able to satisfy a long outstanding ambition to travel to this wonderful part of Europe in search of some of its most magical birds. I had wanted to visit this region for many years... Gruff Dodd searches for lifers in Northern Finland, Sweden and Norway. A superbly detailed report.

Sweden July/August 1995

  • This was a family holiday with my wife, Bridgette and son, Michael, on my first visit to Sweden. I planned to watch birds and wildlife whenever I could. The season presented little opportunity for owls or woodpeckers and this choice of dates was governed by the school holidays. This report concentrates on the birding I did on the trip..Mike King, the Gloster Birder reports
