Nautnes 14 March 2013 - A noticeable influx and more Northern Lights

Calm with some fog patches early on, northerly winds and clear later.

Got up to find that some migrants had arrived at Nautnes, a flock of around 12 Blackbird svarttrost, a Redwing rødvingetrost, several Fieldfare gråtrost, getting on for 20 Starling stær and a Woodpigeon ringdue were in the area. These were seen during a pre.-breakfast-that-never-happened stroll with the dog. I must have got almost 200m from the house.

It's OK to have a house with this kind of view when you don't have time to go anywhere else.....

Late in the evening there was another Northern Lights display which was not as powerful as the other day but I may have improved on the photography side of things and managed to take some pictures. I've said it before and I'll say it again - about time to buy a landscape lense - along with a new pair of boots, a microwave and all that other stuff I never get time to do. Mostly the boots though, mine are shot....
