Last weekend I visited Knuthöjdsmossen nature reserve a fascinating place with several small ponds in a muir or moorland like environment where the Red-throated diver or as it also is called the Red-throated loon breeds. A fabulous bird with a lot of character.
The alarm was set to 4:00 am to get in position before the sunrise, just to be able to capture the birds and in beautiful morning light. This area is famous for misty mornings witch creates magical pictures. During my two mornings there were unfortunately no mist.
Along with the loons there wear several Golden-Eyes and Teals in the area fighting for their females hearts.
