Sound Recording Trip to Sweden
Hällsjön at Night – Summer night on Hällsjön lake at around 1:00am. Eurasian Bittern, Common Snipe, Eurasian Woodcock, Sedge Warbler and many more species were actively calling through the (short!) night.

Eurasian Pygmy OwlEPO1a The song of Eurasian Pygmy Owl (Glaucidium passerinum) is a monotonous series of high-pitched fluty notes.
European NightjarEN1a The unique churring song of the Eurasian Nightjar (Caprimulgus europaeus) . Toward the end of this sample there are a few wing claps as well as some ‘co-ic’ contact calls.
Thrush Nightingale (Luscinia luscinia)TN1a The song of the Thrush Nightingale (Luscinia luscinia) is powerful, rich & melodic. Song phrases are varied and complex and usually slightly longer in duration and slower in tempo than its close relative the Common Nightingale (Luscinia megarhynchos).
Eden's Garden Cottages
If you’re looking for accommodation in the Black River Valley region then Edens’ Garden Cottages is ideal. Located on a farm near lake Hallsjön it is an excellent base for bird & wildlife watching in the area. The owner of the accommodation, John de Jong also runs canoeing safaris along with river to see beavers. We saw a beaver not far from the accommodation late one evening and sightings are quite reliable.
