Sweden, a land of lakes, forests and wild uplands - a country renowned for its beautiful unspoilt environments where wildlife is respected and valued.
Malcolm first visited the area to capture sufficient material to portray its environments and wildlife to produce a travel film to share with fellow birders.
What he experienced exceeded all expectations and now after several trips visiting various regions and at different seasons he has more than enough material to produce two films on 'Birding Sweden'.
Each film is of two hours duration. This the first DVD - Take 1: 'Hawk Owl Winter - Swan Spring' provides a general overview of Sweden and its wildlife then looks at winter biridng, introducing birdlife which has adpated to cope with the rigours of the Swedish climate. The Hawk Owl, for instance, a couple of eagles, the Grey-headed and White-backed Woodpeckers, Nutcracker and more. 'Swan Spring' depicts the change of seasons and checks out the scores of summer breeding birds streaming into the country from March through till late May.
In early summer after first birding the Svartadalen region of Central Sweden, Malcolm travels to the uplands of Southern Lapland where he studies a new range of species, woodpeckers, northern owls, including the iconic Great Grey Owl, Gyr Falcon, Arctic and Black Terns, phalaropes and numerous upland breeding waders.
