A day outside Västerås
Early in the morning I got up to get to Västerås and meet Bjarne, Erik, Jesper and Daniel. Then we drove to Rålken to see the hawk owl, but we didn't see anyone. So we took us to another beautiful place in the near area. In Skillberg it's an bird feeder that are very attractive for the birds in the woods, both european nutcrackers and one great headed woodpecker, it was the first time I saw this bird. When we had been there for a time and everybody had their cameras full of pictures we drove back to Rålken and when we arrived two other photographers had find the owl, not so close, but still a very good day. See Eriks photos from the day, click here
That was the pictures of the european nutcrackers (nötkråka), and here are the pictures of the great headed woodpecker (gråspett).. Can you find the great spotted woodpecker (större hackspett)..?
And then the pictures of the hawk owl.. and you probably see the great spotted woodpecker (större hackspett) also here..?
..So maybe this great spotted woodpecker followed us this day.. it seems that it shows up on many of the pictures ;)
Happy valentine's day!
I just updated the gallery with some new pictures, more will come, click here
