5 days at my cabin – day 5

I had left my Little Acorn camera out overnight at the cabin to see if any animals came to visit.  I was surprised next morning to see that a Reindeer had been to visit in the middle of the night.little acorn camera reindeer

Myself and Erik walked in the forest.  We eventually decided to stop and make fire,

and cook coffee and some lunch.

Close to where we made fire, we found a couple of really nice Birch burs.

Later during our walk, we found a site where a fox had killed a Capercaillie.

I could not understand why there was a lot of mouse droppings in one are, but then realised that this was actually the crop contents and that this bird had recently been eating Birch leaf buds.

We spent the afternoon fishing but again did not catch anything.

At 6pm we loaded our kit in the valp and Erik gave me a lift to my car.  As we drove along the track I had walked to the cabin on, I spotted fresh bear tracks.

The tracks were from the previous day and it was not a particularly large bear that had made them, so if we had travelled in the opposite direction the previous evening we might of seen it.

  1. I like your your tea/coffee pot that you put directly in the fire. Is it Saami or from the pantry. I enjoy your blog very much.

    • Hi Robert, These pots are available to buy in most stores here as everyone uses them when out in the forest.
