Northern Hawk OwlSweden is a very nice country, full of civilised people and very nice landscapes. It also has some very good birding possibilities, one of the many highlights being the spring gatherings of Common Cranes at Lake Hornborga. As the numbers climbed over recent years, so too had my interest in witnessing the spectacle, the 2010 bonanza of 18,000 birds just mouth-watering to the extreme. So, when fancying a little weekend away in spring 2012, my thoughts turned to putting this into action, the idea becoming all the more tempting by an unprecedented influx of Great Grey Owls into southern Sweden over the preceding month and the minor issue that I managed to find an air ticket from my base in Lithuania for less than the price of a medium-sized pizza!
