Another year older today, but what a fantastic way to spend my Birthday!!
Several Tree Pipits singing this morning, 1 pair of Spotted Flycatchers in the trees, a Great Spotted Woodpecker drumming at the top of a dead Spruce, a Cuckoo singing and a pair of Common Sandpipers around the edge of the lake all day. It was also nice to see the three Reindeer again near the cabin.
I have a small hand-drill, but no drill bits so I cut the off of one of the nails I intend to use and insert the nail into the drill as use it as my drill-bit.
As I walked back to the cabin I flushed two Hazel Grouse.
I spent the evening on a high ridge behind the cabin
There was an Arctic Hare outside the cabin though.
