Sitting quietly working in the garden and there’s always something new that happens…see here!
1. Nuthatch and Great spotted woodpecker atop a spruce tree
2. My handsome grey red squirrel disappears up the tree with a grunt
3. I had a rodent visitor in the night on the balcony on the second floor outside my bedroom…it had climbed up through the Clematis
4. Redpolls with several others
5. Long-tailed tits
6. Bully Robin!
Marsh tit (løvmeis)
Yellowhammers (gulspurv), part of a flock of 11 birds with a brambling (bjørkefink)
Hawfinch (kjernebiter) with nuthatch (spettmeis) at the end!
Bird diversity in snow
Fieldfare (gråtrost) in snow
Nuthatch (spettmeis) singing in the garden this morning…now it must be spring! ;)
It’s about as like winter England as it gets here this morning, grey and drizzling….so nice to have a flock of 17 goldfinches (stillits) brightening up the day and lots of other birds too!
Robin (rødstrupe) with brambling (bjørkefink)
There was also a flock of 100 waxwings feeding in the garden, nuthatches and a treecreeper…Malvik is bird paradise at this time of year!
Another unseasonally “balmy” day in Malvik! Despite a clear night, it was warm enough to breakfast in the garden at sunrise at 7:15 with a beautiful sunrise, joined by a couple of nuthatches and admiral butterflies already on the wing at 9 am! Sad to have to leave for the cooler south (Porsgrunn) on the night train tonight….
Breakfast in the garden and a nuthatch (spettmeis) was dealing with a wild hazelnut in the birch tree above me :)
