This morning DWE and MLA went to Lötenplatform to check out the Marsh harrier nesting activities on Rysjön and Nyängen. We discover 1 for sure new nest but 2 very likely nests as well in Nyängen.

Following this we went to climb and check the larger boxes in Sörön for Tawny Owl’s in order to collect unhatched eggs for the Riksmuseum in Stockholm. Sadly no nests were found in the nest boxes here.

A much nicer day than yesterday and a new nest site for Marsh Harriers on Åslajön brings us to 9 nests so far this season. We think there are currently 2 more pairs that we have not found nests for so far in the Åslaholmen area, but anticipate more birds arriving soon.
