Christmas eve

It is christmas eve, the meat is cooking (typical norwegian xmas dinner coming up in a couple of hours) church has been visited and the peace is entering my home. But my little friends have not been forgotten, they have special xmas food too, served in a star and a xmas tree :-)
And these little ones were spotted this morning, some in the garden, some at Hafrsfjord.

Have a merry christmas everyone!

At this time of year most of the birds have gone somewhere warmer, but we do have some left, and when it gets cold it is very important to feed them. Thats what I did today, and was rewarded vith the visit of several species. All the pictures are taken through dirty windows :-)

Long time no photos, but finally....

It has been a combination of awful weather, wonky lens and beeing bysy that has kept me indoors and not out taking pictures lately. But Friday, 11.november 2011 was a glorious day and I just had to go out and get some shots, even if it was with the small lens 
(the wonky one is in the shop for repair).

From the latest trip to England and Wales

We´ve been over to the UK and have done some birdwatching. WWT Slimbridge, Carphylly Castle in Wales, RSPB in Pulborough are some of the places we visited. But I think the greatest experience was seeing the red kites just off the A40, junction 5, outside Chris´café.
Hope you like the samples.
