Ottenby & Southern Öland - People, Wildlife and Landscape

In september 2010 our family bought a house in Grönhögen. This small village is situated just 7 km north of Ottenby birdstation at the very southern edge of Öland. The area around lighthouse "Långe Jan" is very famous for bird migration both in spring and autum, and of corse good for wildlife photography in general. I will probably spend a lot more time here in the future and here are a few of the pictures i got so far .....
