He has noted 20 vårfåglars first arrival date in Långliden between 1951-2011. 60 year notes will be science Mellannorrland and Sweden. Here we can see how the singing lark, Lapwings become rarer / later and that, instead, are the blackbird and chaffinch first in Liden during spring now. Arnold's diary has been submitted to the Administrative Board and the Swedish Species Information Center (SLU in Uppsala). Swedish Agricultural University (SLU) have started our fenologiprojekt ("Arrival of spring" in various parts of the country) in terms of flora and fauna. It involves first butterfly, bumblebee, with a, flowering, bird arrival, thaw mm in the area (the plot) you live. This is part of the following changes in the climate in Sweden / World.

Christin "Titti" Olsson, Östbyn, whose father worked with Sundsvall F.D.. "Bird legend" in 80- and 90 talet.Nils Lundmark, got in right away and wanted to re-establish their bird interest. Nisse, that died 2006, spent a lot of time up in Holm- and Liden area of ​​inventory and ringing of owls and put up two hundred feeders in our area during the 80-90 century (owls and dippers). Under sina 60 years as an ornithologist put Nisse up over 1600 small bird feeders and about 400 owls. He ringed over 12.000 birds.
