August Thomasson, young birder and photographer from Sösdala in central Skåne, was at his job Monday out riding in the plains west of Kristianstad. When he walked around the Vinnö meadows, along came an eagle gliding low over him. It slips away for a moment towards a wind turbine but turns shortly thereafter back at him.
– “But soon afterwards it flies slowly away towards the turbine again. As it turned the last time I start slowly walking towards the bike”, says August. “I give the eagle a last look and see that it just passes the turbine. Then it happened that should not happen.
