White-tailed eagle (havørn) in flight past Malvikodden
Note that you can see Trondheim (Værnes) airport in the background…this is where eagles were flown out and over to the UK and Ireland as part of the reintroduction program…
You can also hear singing siskin (grønnsisik) in the background.
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!
I’ve seen White-tailed Eagles (havørn) passing the house and down in the bay 3 times today! The second video below is taken from my desk, in slow motion :)
Malvik is on the north edge of a large low pressure system over the UK giving southern Norway a lot of snow and strong easterly winds here, the house creaking as we speak! Much warmer today at -8C, but bitterly cold because of the wind chill. My garden is quite exposed and the small birds disappear to more sheltered spots on days like today. Rushed out to get these pictures of a White-tailed Eagle / Havørn, you can get an impression of its size against the Hooded Crow / Kråke
