Sun at last
30:th of December 2007
After a period of drab and dull weather, at last a day with some sunshine. I take a quick turn to my feeding station for Hawfinches to refill. Five beautiful Hawfinches and a Bullfinch are present, eating sunflowerseads. Some soft rays of sunshine are caressing colour into the bird plumages, even the Greenfinches look stunning.
Later a brisk walk down to the harbour in Väste
rås is rewarding with fresh air and sunshine. As we approach the
mist is ris
rom the surface of open water and ice, and as the low standing sun shines upon it, a beautiful lig
ht is created.
A White-tailed eagle have been spotted as it perches a treetop on the nearest island. A small gathering of people around a tripod and telescope gives it away.
Plenty of gulls are coming in to roost on the ice. Most of them Herrings–, but a couple of Black-
headed– and Great Black-backed Gulls too. It´s time to scan
these flocks more carefully for other Gull species, but we settle for a nice, hot cappuchino in the harbour café this time.
