This event occured a month ago. I really should go back to see if there are any ducklings around.

  11. HAllå! Du frågade om nattskärror. Säkraste tiden är nog andra halvan av maj och första veckorna i juni. Då är de igång ordentligt.Vi hade en spelande omkring oss när vi grillade på midsommar förra året men så sent blir det nog mera osäkert.
