White-tailed Eagle [havsörn]

Long distance, and difficult light, but the big lonely bird sitting on a small rock in the water (in the center of the photo) is actually a white-tailed eagle. We waited for it to come closer, but apparently that was a very good rock to spend the day on. Many other birds around, but only the crows seemed to worry.  Naturum Hornborgasjön, Broddetorp, on October 8, 2016.

Whooper Swan [sångsvan]

One of the other middle aged couples we met today didn't know what to make of this elegant bird. They had probably never met a walking whooper swan before. Naturum Hornborgasjön, Broddetorp, on October 8, 2016.

Common Chaffinch [bofink]

You almost never see any chaffinches in the summer. Now, they are everywhere, especially where there are rowans. Naturum Hornborgasjön, Broddetorp, on October 8, 2016.

Common Raven [korp]

One of two, the other one got away with most of the prey. Grästorp, on October 8, 2016.
