Easter Break


Happy campers warming up some hot dogs before the break.

This easter the programme decided to treat us to a 2 week break, with the catch that we do have some work to do! 😉

It does anyway come welcome to many of the international students who’ve had time to fly home and catch up with their family or have those close come visit Umeå. At times it can feel far away…

In other news, whooper swan (Cygnus cygnus) migration has peaked, and Umeå now has the European record for most swans observed at one place and one time (6316 swans!)

A greylag goose (Anser anser) flies past me at dusk.
