About this product

Birding Sweden, Take 1 has been put together from material collected during several trips to Sweden, where the author visited various regions during different seasons. This DVD gives a general overview of Sweden and its wildlife, and then looks at winter birding, introducing birdlife which has adpated to cope with the rigours of the Swedish climate. Amongst species covered are the hawk owl, a couple of eagles, the grey-headed and white- backed woodpecker, the nutcracker and more. "Swan Spring" depicts the change of seasons and checks out the scores of summer breeding birds streaming into the country from March through till late May. In early summer, after first birding the Svartadalen region of Central Sweden, the attention shifts to the uplands of Southern Lapland. This part features, amongst others, woodpeckers, northern owls, including the iconic great grey, gyr falcons, arctic and black terns, phalaropes, and numerous upland breeding waders.
