You travel through an open and gently rolling landscape on this
section. There are lots of small pools in the area. The majority
are stagnant ice hollows, which were created when the ice melted
after the last Ice Age.
North of Resåkra you pass by ancient pastures and grazed
woodlands. The purple coloured western marsh orchid flowers in the
damp hollows in the early summer.
Lake Eksholmssjön is not very inviting for swimming due to the
dark coloured water. It is coloured by the humus from the peaty
soils. Some trees stand on the edge of the lake with large
bases in the water, others hang out over the surface and large
trees frame the picture of a Scanian rainforest. There are plenty
of interesting plants and beetles here.
During your walk, a number of planes will take off and land,
close by. Malmö Airport (previously Malmö-Sturup) is situated a
couple of kilometres to the south. The airport was opened in 1972
and replaced Bulltofta. Up until then, Sturup was a small village
in Skåne, originating from the Middle Ages. By order of the
Government, the residents were forced to move and the village was
erased from the map.
Many of the small pools which are spread out over the landscape
were once filled with peat. Man has cut, stacked and dried peat
here, to use it as fuel for the fire and for cooking.
