This is only a one day trip to the coast of the Baltic Sea. But I have not been there before so it is new to me. This place is located south of Oxelösund, on the south side of the inlet. It is a small and old fishing village where only a few men still are fishing. I was there mainly to see sea birds and to document some of the village.
I had checked the weather forecast. It said it might be morning mist but later on, mostly sun at the coast.
I left home at 7.30h and had some crazy weather on the road. It varied between clear sky, heavy mist and a little rain. Had no idéa of what to expect next. Twice I could stop and take some shots of mist hanging over the farmland. Other moments I had to slow down due to heavy fog.
Arriving at Hummelvik the mist was still hanging over the Baltic Sea even if it was rather clear in the fishing village. I spent a while looking around and checking out the birds in the area. Eider, Barnacle goose, Goosanders, wagtails and gulls of coursre, and I took some shots of course. There was also a small ship wreck at one of the piers. I met a man and asked him how I could get out to the peninsula. He told me so. I could take the car a little bit longer and then I gathered my stuff and walked the rest of the way.
I walked around a bit checking the area and the birds on the water. I spotted two razorbills (Tordmule) but could not get any shots. Then it was close to lunch so I ate what I had. Packed my stuff and went back to the car. Driving back to the fishing village I spotted a little European Robin and got some nice shots.

I spent a little more time at the village talking to fishermen. Then I left to go to Oxelösund on the north side of the inlet. It was a 30 min drive to go there. But that place was a dissappointment now. Almost no birds I had not already seen. So, after an h I left to go home again. A great day.
