Brilliant and cold

23:rd of November 2008
Northerlies, –5° C but some blue skies and sunshine makes it a nice day out. Me and my friend Jan-olov drive around forest tracks to look for birds. A few stops to take winter pictures doesn´t really produce anything, until we stop at a place called Odessa (west of Krim) where a Great Grey Shrike is perched in a treetop, 14 Common Crossbills fly past with high, "kypping" calls, and a female Black Grouse feeds in an Alder by the road. An adult White-tailed Eagle soars by and we start to feel that this day is actually quite bearable... despite the cold.
