It’s a strange autumn for bird migration

We now have 15 Long-tailed Tits here in Nattavaara

northern long-tailed tit (1125 x 849)

and locally there have been a couple of Hoopoe’s  (Upupa epops) this week, which certainly should not be here!

The above image comes from this blog; johnpreedy.blogspot.se/2011/05/hoopoe.html

And over the last couple of days I have seen a Blackbird (Turdus merula) and a Snow Bunting (Plectrophenax nivalis), both of which do not usually occur at this time of year.

  1. Wow! What’s the Hoopoe doing up with you? They are with us late spring in south of France, I thought they went further south?

  2. I have some very confused bees around the house and a gang of spanish sparrows behaving like they are mating? All very strange. Can we blame chemtrails or HAARP?
