One of my absolute favourite dive sites in Kosterhavets National Park is closed as bird protection area between April 1 and Juli 31. Käbblingarna, a group of small islands,
It’s becoming a tradition to get out there as soon as possible once allowed again. This year I had nothing particular booked at work August 1, so why not book in a dive before breakfast?
I got out there early in the morning in a calm, gentle breeze. The birds inhabiting the islands was not used to disturbance and made that very clear at first.

There is this one lobster I see every year which I believe is the same individual. I have met him in the same area several years in a row, often in the same house. I can tell he is old from the white stuff growing on his claws, and that’s also what I hope to identify him by. Stay tuned about that. Anyway, I was pleased to see he survived another season of lobster fishing.
