The Grey heron was repeatedly attacked by a Black-headed Gull. Not sure why as I could not see a reason. There was also another heron that was not attacked. Finally this one had enough and flew up to the top of a tree. Last image is another Grey heron. 
The geese are graylag geese already comming together to prepare migration back south.

It seems like I always see this bird from behind. But this time I wanted to share them anyway as I have one young here. And that don´t happen to often.

My lucky day when it comes to birds. First time ever I was fledglings of the Crested Tits. 
I rarely see this bird. Maybe once of twice a year and now I was able to spot three young ones. Even if only for a brief moment.

Three species of swallows and swifts in an hour. Not bad in my book. This is three out of four of them in Sweden. The one I don´t have is the Sand Martin. People say they are in my area but I have never seen them. Not as I know anyway. 

This particular day the Barn Swallow was the hardest one to catch. It is so fast and flew around my head, too close. And to fast to catch. 

But, I had a lot of fun.
