Birds of the Swedish Winter

Ok, let me start by talking about the elephant in the room for the 2020 Birds of the Swedish Winter tour! On this trip, the golden eagles did not visit us, even though they were in the area. There could be a few reasons why this may have happened. We know that one of the male area eagles had gone missing & we believe it may have sadly died. We are patiently waiting to see when another young male eagle takes over its territory. Also, the weather could be some of the reason too, by not being cold enough. The temperature was above zero for a lot of the time, which is too warm for some of the eagles that live in this area to be hungry to come in & feed. There are around five different golden eagle nest sites within this territory. With so many potential eagles to visit, it was extraordinary not to see any at all here on this trip. Sadly, the eagle not showing up has happened only once before around 8-9 years ago during the 35 years Conny has been monitoring & watching the eagles, so it’s uncommon for this to have occurred.

NaturesLens plan this holiday for when the eagles are the most likely to come down to the hides which are early March.

The excitement & anticipation of our trip to photograph the Golden Eagles of the Swedish Winter was unbearable for all us including our guests! The expectations of photographing the wildlife & especially getting up close & personal with wild Golden Eagles in this beautiful snow-capped Swedish pine forest was going to be epic!

It all started with a trip around the M25 towards Heathrow where I met our first guest as we started our journey’s final destination to Skellefteå Airport in Sweden. I met our other guests for this trip at the Swedish airport as they were flying in from Hong Kong!

Golden Eagles of the Swedish Winter by David

A Close Up Of One Of The Golden Eagles Feeding In The Snow   Image Captured During The NaturesLens Golden Eagles Of The Swedish Winter Photography Holiday

During early March 2018, David attended our Golden Eagles of the Swedish Winter photography holiday. We chose this time of year to visit Sweden because the Eagles are most active in cold weather. Also, Northern Sweden in winter is spectacular with the pristine snow providing a magical quality to the images.

As you can see from David’s photographs, he was blessed with amazing light & some stunning eagle activity. Just look at the catchlight in the eagle’s eyes & the gorgeous golden tones in the feathers.
