About the magnificent birds I manage to capture with my camera at Svalbard.
søndag 19. juni 2011
This is y 90th blog-post, and since I did not find any more interesting birds to photograph today, I spent my time out to read flags of Purple Sandpipers (Fjæreplytt). I managed to read twelve different individuals on the tundra, and I am quite pleased with this. The first picture shows the flag-type that we are using this year, dark green with white letters (AMA). The second picture shows one of the birds that were ringed last year, and this has got a lime-colored flag with black letters (EAY).
The last picture of today is of the King Eider (Praktærfugl) -pair that is still lying in Tuedammene.
I am an eager birder who have moved to Svalbard and Longyearbyen, and spend as much time as possible out with my feathered friends. I will use this blog to tell all of you who visit this blog about the birds and other wonders of nature that interest me and that I manage to get photos of. If you are coming to Svalbard, or if you see an interesting bird while on Svalbard, please dont hesitate to contact me by giving a comment to one of my posts. If you are coming to Longyearbyen and would like to contact me for info on where to find the wildlife, please contact me on: firstname.lastname@example.org
