#2 The starlings have arrived and are moving into the nest boxes.

#3 The football season and “Allsvenskan” – Sweden’s top football league – kicked off last weekend. Roffe’s soul is black and yellow as in “AIK”, mine is green and white as in Hammarby and Celtic.

A snow bunting, a rare bird not often seen in our area. Roffe was lucky though to catch a glimpse of it the other day.
