This was yesterdays highlight. While I was looking at the Buzzard I noted the little Northern Wheatear on the ground. First one this season. He is a beauty as much as the Buzzard. There was a female too but she did not want to be on camera. :)

### Blackbird and Robin

I saw this blackbird male on my morning walk today. He was sitting in backlight that enhanced his bill nicely. The little Robin sits quite well in that tree. Suitable colors for it I think.

The Horned Grebe is back! I found 4 couples in the lake today and one of them already started nesting procedure.  It is a bit early yet for nesting but it is a good sign for times to come.

Kaspisk pipare - Charadrius asiaticus - Caspian Plover

About Caspian Plover on wiki The Caspian Plover (Charadrius asiaticus) is a wader in the plover family of birds. It breeds in western and central Asia and migrates southward to eastern and southern Africa to escape the northern winter.
It was first seen in Mörkö, Sweden march 25, 2014. I saw it today so the bird was a lifer for both Sweden and me. :)
