Those gulls are really nasty sometimes. They are bullying every bird that comes close to the nests even if it is birds that never bother them. They do the same thing to cranes. And coots. But Coots are understandable, They do eat the eggs.

A pair of Northern Pintail was feeding at Knutstorp today. It is open ground down hill but I could get rather close before they took off. But I think it was the Lapwings that alerted them, not me.

I visted the little shallow lake Lilla Näsnares the other day. They have built a new platform for birders and I wante to check it out.

There were several pairs of Mute swan and I thought there might be nesting. There was also some Common Terns showing off :) To my pleasure. 

When I checked my shots at home  I enlarged one of them and saw that the Mute swans already had chicks. I had not seen that as I did not bring my Spotting Scope. A nice surprise. Now I have to go there often as I have not seen swan young for several years.
