Vitosha mountain alpine walk, Sofia, Bulgaria

I was taken on a second wonderful field trip on Saturday 7th November 2015 at dusk by Maria Tariyska and Vassil Karaivanov! Vassil drove us up to the skiing area on Mt. Vitosha (Bulgaria’s 4th highest mountain), from where there are a  number of marked trails in the natural park!
As we walked, I heard a familiar sound from home, Nutcrackers! They were no doubt feeding on pine nuts.  Both Scot’s pine (Pinus sylvestris), the Macedonian pine (Pinus peuce) and the Dwarf Mountain pine (Pinus mugo) are all found on Vitosha.
It was interesting to see several familiar Norwegian species up here!
