Some nice visitors

The last week has been quite exciting as we have had some unusual guests here….

Everyday since last Monday a Moose has visited the garden and here I photographed it crossing the road.

and here is a piece of video of it in the garden the following day

We were even more surprised when on Wednesday it had a large calf with it

On Friday morning as we walked out of the house to take Emma to daycare a Siberian Nutcracker (thanks David) (Nucifraga caryocatactes ssp macrorhynchos) flew from a tree onto the ground.  Unfortunately I did not have much time to watch and photograph it so this is the best I could do

and just after dark on Friday evening we had a Tengmalm’s Owl in the garden, flying around and calling.  I have put up a nest box now in the hope that they might stay.

  1. Hej,
    you got a picture of an älg at last! I wanted to thank you for the interessting fire making lesson in solberget.
    It’s a pity I’m already back in Germany now, hoping to come back to Lappland next year!

    Många hälsningar från Tyskland och lycka till!
    Barbara

    • Hej Barbara, Keep watching here as I will be writing about our day here soon :>) Har det sa bra!!

  2. Hi Kevin. You meant Nutcracker rather than Nuthatch of course. Glad to see you are getting about and finding some good birds. Just had a week in Fuerteventura – rather hotter than where you are at around 35 degrees every day. Found a Roller, which is a rare bird there.

    Hope you are both OK

    David
