After work at Stora Amundön
I took the car down to Stora Amundön after work. The weather was really lovely with nice light and almost no wind. When I arrived I saw that I wasn´t the only one having the same idea. Stora Amundön is a small island in the southern part of Gothenburg’s archipelago. This time of year the fields at Amundön function as a resting place for migratory birds. Not the biggest flocks but sometimes you can find rarities.
I knew there should be some migratory birds there and I hoped to catch one or two in the nice afternoon light. Barnacle Goose and Pied Avocet had been seen here earlier in the week so that was the main menu.
Out in the field I found this Hooded Crow that foraged for snacks. It wasn´t shy so I had the opportunity to take some photos and this one turned out fun.
I could also spot, Canadian goose, Barnacle Goose, Goosander, Gulls and a Pied Avocet. I must unfortunately have startled the Pied Avocet because it took flight soon after I discovered it. Instead I focused on the Barnacle Goose and I got some ok pictures of the pair.
I am not pleased with the sharpness, it´s on the bird furthest, and I feel I should have made something better of the situation. I had great reflections from the sun coming into the water from 3 windows in a building on the other side of the small bay.
So I probably will go back to see if I can nail this picture during the weekend.
