Sun lounger scouting and wader hikes
Not so long ago it was common to put the binoculars on the shelf when the spring migration was over. One took a break until the returning waders began to appear again in late July.
This has changed, and not even Midsummer Eve and day is birding free now, even though Midsummer Eve is kind of sacred here in Sweden. For example, Öland’s only second Little Bittern was found in Gårdby harbour on Midsummer Day in 2007.
