Most of the times I visit the dump there are a large number of gulls present. This day it was lots of jackdaws in the area.

The old barn

This is the old barn I shared a few older images of a couple of weeks ago. I went there to check it out. It is still standing, but barely. It is supported on the back side to  prevent it from falling. But from what I can see now it will not last another winter. Some heavy snow and the roof is gone. Last winter we had almost no snow at all yet some holes are formed in the roof. 
I thought last shot would look great as art so it is manipulated.

Sjöholm farm

Mostly dry areas "inside" the reed. All this green should be filled with water.  :(

I went to Sjöholm to see if there would be any migrating Common Snipes. Below the barn is a small waterfilld wetland. Or, should be. Half of it has dried out this summer. Still, there was enough water to host about 15 Snipes, some Greylag goose and Lapwings. But it was the Snipes that interested me. I like those cool birds with the long bills. And I was happy to see them

Roe deer and Common Blackbird

 Roe Deer
The female in teh first image was injured. Her hind leg was useless and she walked on three legs. I did not see any wound so I don´t know what was wrong. She seemed to manage anyway.


Young Common Blackbird, male
This young guy was not in a cage even if it looks like it. We were on either side of a fence.

Barns at Klastorp

These barns belongs to one of the largest Mansions outside my town. They are built in a style mostly used in the southern part of Sweden, Skåne. Mostly called Timber framing.

The first two images is new. What they are used for today, other then to have a party, I don´t know. 
From the closeup I can see that one has been used as a stable for horses. 

The last image is taken long ago on the other side of the road.So, there are 4 of those barns. Used for different things I believe. The last one seem to be machinery and hay.

There are many small critters around us that we rarely notice. Here are a few.

I found these images from a morning trip in 151231. I remember I was amazed as I could see the early morning sunlight right through the house.

This is what it looks like where I live these days. They are digging up everywhere to change our watersystem.  Not fun really.

Stendörren is a Nature Reserve and the only place where I have seen this kind of fence. It´s created with a lot of thinner branches stacked inside two rows of poles. No wires needed. Looks weird but works.

This old barn is no longer in use. They have closed all entrances so I can´t peek in and see what is there. But I think it was a stall for cattle. This summer I noticed it really started to fall apart. There are holes in the roof. 

There is a family of greylag goose at the end of the path :)

I have been away for 4 days. I went down to Öland. An island in the south part of Sweden just outside the coast. To get there you have to pass a bridge from the mainland to Öland. It´s a 6h drive to get there and my back don´t really like it. 

 Arriving at the south point you first enter a large area where animals, (cattle, sheep and deer) walk freely. So you have to drive carefully. There are birds on the road as well of course. But the cows and the sheep are the worst ones. They just stop on the road just looking back at you. Just moving at their own pace.

This seemed to be a busy situation. When the woman turned around she had a phone between her jaw and sholder.
