This is juvenile gull of sort. I don´t dare even to guess which species it is. Probably a year old. It was alone.

Gathering of cranes

The gathering of cranes also draws a lot of crowd and jacdaws to the field. And doves. It is quite unusual to see this. At the same time the farmers are harvesting. I was surprised when I arrived at this Nature Reserve, Kvismaren.

Swans

This was weird somehow. I did see the young whooper swans but no adults. Then there was adult mute swans. In the first image the mute swan is swimming really fast towards the young whooper swans. I thought, there is trouble going on soon as the two swan species don´t really get along. But luckily nothing of the sort happened. :)

They are gathering and preparing for the trip south again. 
I think they will leave early as the waterlevel is still too low.
