Spontaneous but successful photo trip at the archipelago of Torö, with Jonathan Stenvall.
Stenstrand, Torö. The lighthouse of Landsort in the horizon.
Barn swallows was searching for food at Reveln, Torö.

A random fact about the Common Swift is that this bird can reach staggering speeds up to 200 km per hour.I used manual focus, and you need a touch of patience and experiences of how and where the birds were flying.
Both me and Jonathan hoped for some waders, but there was not many of them. Green sandpipers (picture), some dunlins, wood sandpipers, redshanks, ringed plover and a whimbrel. But no photo positions, mostly birds that was heading south and flew over us.

Long shutter speed and common tern.
Another Common tern, it makes itself explained to its name at Torö, where it is a very common bird out here.
