About the magnificent birds I manage to capture with my camera at Svalbard.
fredag 25. november 2011
After we came back from the Andaman Islands, we spent a week together with my girlfriends family in England. And since I am not to sure about driving on teh "wrong" side of the road, I was kind of restricted to where I could go birdwatching. But since we were spending a weekend in Suffolk I thought that I at least had a little chance of getting some birding out of it. We stayed in the middle of the country-side, and it was a perfect place to go birdwatching for birds of farmland. Pheasants (Fasan) were everywhere, and I managed to spook out a litter of Red-legged Partridge (Rødhøne) wich I have not seen before in the UK. Large flocks of Wood Pigeons (Ringdue), smaller flocks of Collared Doves (Tyrkerdue) and singles of Stock Dove (Skogdue) were nice, and gave more pleasing than the large flocks of Rooks (Kornkråke) that were on "every" field. A couple of Fallow Deer (Dåhjort) came running by at a few meters distance after they got spooked by a man walking his dog, and a Rabbit (Kanin) tried to hide as well as it could in the three centimetre long grass. The trip was finnished in the beautiful light of teh setting sun showering a few Wood Pigeons sat in a tree just outside the house we stayed in.
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
