About the magnificent birds I manage to capture with my camera at Svalbard.
onsdag 29. juni 2011
This was a busy day with work of many kinds, and only one bird managed to get onto my memorycard. This was a Great Black-backed Gull (Svartbak) in its second calendar year. This is a rather rare bird to see up here, only my second Great Black-back this year, and it is even rarer to see such young birds. It was sat with about 12 Glaucous Gulls (Polarmåke). It was not pleased with me coming to take pictures of it, and flew over me, before it disappeared over the city.
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
