Today it was time to go back home. I woke up rather early, as expected. I went up, packed my belongings and cleaned up the room. Had the last breakfast and prepared something to eat during the day. Coffee, bread, boiled eggs and fruit. Enough to bring me home.

Leaving the hostel I first went down to South Point. And was greeted by some beautiful Fallow Deer.  They are free and wild animals but this morning they stayed close to the cattle. A little mist was still in the air.

Arriving at the Lihgthouse Långe Jan I spotted a Mute swan with three young. What a treat! Loved to see them. Behind them were a person from the staff carrying cages for catching waders for examinations.

A last look at Långe Jan seen from the beach.

And good bye to the House Martins. All the Swifts I had seen yesterday was all gone again.

Common Shelduck and Redshank

Leaving Ottenby I went to a place I had not visited yet. In Grönhögen there are a golf course and the beach alongside it are great for birding.

Pied Avocet
Continuing north I made a stop t Eckelsudde to see the Avocets one final time and was greeted with beautiful and clear weather and a few birds not too far off.

Now it was almost lunch and time to go up to the bridge that would take me to the mainland.

An hours drive and then, at Emån time for lunch and a short nap.

Four more hours of driving and I was home around 17.30h  Tired, but happy with the trip.
