Further into the wild

18:th of September 2009
Probing further into the wilderness on these waterways takes us to a delta-like landscape with the river parting to several arms. A flock of 5 Whooper Swans take off in front of us, a Dipper and some Goosanders too. There aren´t too many birds around this time of the year, but it´s easy to imagine how it would be in spring or summer. Plenty of Waders and Bluethroats for instance. Mikael knows of breeding Golden Eagles and Gyr Falcons in the cliffs that we see, almost hidden by the fog.
The crystal clear water is filled with Arctic and Canadian Charr, Grayling and Brown Trout, spawning below us right now.
