First wader nest found!

The meadows around Ammarnäs are not only being used for foraging but also some birds use it for nesting! On the 28th of May a Lapwing nest was found with around one week of incubation, so breeding has started below the treeline!

Although conditions in the mountains look still quite unaccesible for breeding birds, down in the valley there are some chances where new green grass is rapidly changing the colour of the ground giving us some hopes that the spring will eventually start!
