Northern Sweden & Norway trip - end of May 2015

A friend and I spent a few days birding around Härjedalen in the southernmost part of northern Sweden. We also wanted to see Norway, and since it was so close to us, we spent a whole day on the other side of the border, around Røros. Despite not seeing any Gyr Falcons or Snowy Owls, and the weather being terrible most of the time, we had a wonderful time and will most likely return to these beautiful birding grounds many more times. Here follows some of the pictures from the trip.
