This time, a treecreeper (trekryper) on the bird feeder looking for tidbits, bird diversity under the feeder, my resident pair of great spotted woodpeckers (flaggspett) and the last video taken from my home office shows a white-tailed eagle flying across the bay and landing in a tree on Malvikodden (I hadn’t noticed when I was filming that there was a second bird in that tree and the first bird looks like he lands on her back and flaps his wings….more than that I can’t see…. ;) Eagles start the breeding season early!
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!
Oystercatchers (tjeld) are one of the first spring migrants to arrive here and early March is the normal time. I was woken up by the characteristic piping call of these birds this morning!
An eagle also suddenly appeared right outside the window where I sit, no more than 30m away…but it was all over in a flash and it was gone……
