About the magnificent birds I manage to capture with my camera at Svalbard.
fredag 29. juli 2011
Today I have got some pictures from the ringing-session that I did up here. The day before and this day there was a Polarbear (Isbjørn) in the fiord, and that of course made it a bit more interesting, allthough it was on the other side of the fiord. Today I caught both Purple Sandpiper (Fjæreplytt) and Dunlin (Myrsnipe), but the most fun bird to get in the traps were a young Snow Bunting (Snøspurv). This I think is the first time we have caught a Snow Bunting in the sandpiper-traps.
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
