This is the best time of year for getting up at the crack of dawn, lots of birdsong too! The sunrise at the moment is about 6 am…..but, in a few weeks, it will be 3 am which is a bit early! The long-term forecast is for clear-blue skies for the whole of Easter week here….with over 10C during the days…cold at nights to start with (it was -5C when the picture was taken) but frosts disappearing in a few days! Should be a great Easter week working in my gardens!
Today the position of the sunrise on the horizon passed the point at Malvikodden on the other side of the bay (81 deg., just north of west). Only 10-11 weeks ago the sun was rising in the south, so it changes by some 10 degs per week on average!
Woken at 4:15 by a newly arrived garden warbler (hagesanger) (or is it just a blackcap?) singing at full throttle in the garden (sorry about the focus, I was half asleep and didn’t notice!). A few minutes later the sun rose as fishermen motored out onto the still fjord.
