A few more photos from Lake Hornborga, since it is one of the major events in southern Scandinavia, especially for natur photographers. About 150.000 people visit this place during a few weeks of bird migration. That is a lot, but it doesn’t feel crowded, maybe because people visit at all times during the day. Many find the early morning best, at sunrise, since the birds are flying in from their resting places in the middle of the lake then. I found it also interesting to see the crowds of birds during daytime, especially since they hardly react on people, contrary to what they do in nature. They have learned that the people stay behind the fences and are of no danger.
