Lives in Torshälla and work at Nordea Bank as a Corporate advisor. He has been a birder since 1974 and got hooked on seawatching and migration counting in 1978.
   Even though he is interested in all birds, seabird migration has a special place in his heart. He has been a regular at migration sites along the Swedish coast (the island Utlängan in Blekinge being one of his favourites). When collecting additional information for this book he has, for example, visited Slettnes lighthouse (arctic Norway), Madeira (6 trips), Canaries, Iceland, Mediterranean Sea, Senegal (3 trips) and USA. Niklas has written several field identification papers for different journals and also give talks. Co-author of the Swedish bestselling book 'Sjöfågelboken', which was published in year 1993 and reprinted in 95'.
   Being musically interested, he has (by rumours) advanced from punk and rock to ambient. But, 'dark' and melancohly music such as Cure, Skinny Puppy, Joy Division and Virgin Prunes still have a big room in his heart.
