Skåne : Forsaka

We decided to take a walk to a local waterfall, a popular place for the locals…
Through the forest, which, unlike the pine ones in our area of Sweden, is largely made up of deciduous trees…

The forest itself was wonderful, the waterfall wasn’t bad at all, but the thing that the kids enjoyed most of all, was the wandering of the many many ‘skallbagge’ (forest beetles)….

Evidently these little guys were out on the search for mushrooms. It must have been time for the little ones to leave their nests because they were EVERYWHERE! “It’s a party!” the kids cried!

In the above photo Leon was lifting his leg to NOT tread on them – a very tricky feat – we spent most of the rest of the walk stopping, moving little beetles out of the middle of the path, crouching down to see if they were dead or alive… it took a long time….

Eventually we found our first blueberries of the year! An event to keep our minds off the beetles (for a while at least!)….

What could be a better way to end a forest walk?!
