  2. Fantastiska bilder på flyttfåglarna!!
    Nu är det verkligen hög tid för alla flockar att bege sig iväg och det är med vemod man betraktar flytten, men så trevligt när de återvänder på våren :)
    Vi var på fågeltornet här i helgen och betraktade flyttfåglarnas aktivitet - kul!
    Må gott! /Bea
