Karpalundsdammarna – Karpalund ponds

Today I was with a friend at the Karpalunds ponds to check bird life. We had been to the Hercules ponds before and there was not a single bird! On the Karpalunds ponds, it was not much better. Three bird species turned out, Coot, Red-necked Grebe and a mute swan family with seven kids!

Idag var jag med en vän på Karpalundsdammarna för att kolla fågellivet. Vi hade varit vid Hercules dammarna innan och där var det inte en enda fågel! På Karpalundsdammarna var det inte mycket bättre. Tre fågelarter visade sig, Sothöna, gråhakedopping och en knölsvan familj med sju ungar!

    Imponerande av knölsvansparet att lyckats få fram sju ungar som överlevt så här pass länge, oddsen för att dessa ungar ska bli vuxna är mycket god.

    How beautiful John – I wanted so badly to see a Mute Swan carrying its really young cygnets on its back but once again, our rain nearly every weekend kept me from getting to the bigger parks and when I got there, they were a soggy mess.

        I remember you said that last year – you had taken many pics and then had to edit them – very painstaking (but a beautiful effort in the end).
