Runde – Summer 2011

Made an one day stop at the bird island Runde this year again. Due to heavy fog laying up on the mountains I decided to focus on the Northern gannets. So I took a boat trip around the island, to get pretty close to the sea bird colonies from below. A young Gannet coming in […]

The great catch

One of the evenings in Corbett (from my trip to India earlier this year) gave me a nice photo opportunity. A Changeable Hawk-eagle had taken a Ruddy Shelduck as prey. He was sitting on the river bank feeding on the prey when we drove by with the jeep. Funny sight as the duck is almost […]

Daniel Stenberg – A lifelong passion for birds

Since 10 years of age my first and foremost interest has been bird watching. Bird watching as in the meaning of studying wild birds with feathers and wings; that is if you had any other idea what I meant with watching birds. I don´t really know how this interest became so strong, I have now […]

Eagles in Flatanger

A few weeks ago I visited maybe one of the best spots for White-Tailed Eagle in Norway. Ole Martin Dahle runs this place from Lausnes in Flatanger and he really is a skilled guide. I had a very good day with lots of photos and fun. If you go here in the summer you will […]

Staying at Hovdmyra (Josteins place), gives you good opportunities to encounter wildlife. At this time of the year you will not get to see the […]

Hornøya – Home to the Seabirds

Last weekend I visited the only arctic community of the western Europe, Vardø. 5 minutes outside of Vardø lies the island of Hornøya. Hornøya is a very important breeding ground for many of our Norwegian seabirds, such as Kittiwakes, Razorbills, Puffins and Guillemots. This is a perfect place to really get close on to the […]

Pangot with surroundings – last destination

Corbett gave me one last glimpse of tiger for probably a long time, and after Corbett we headed towards our last destination on this trip. Pangot is located 15 kilometers from Nainital at an altitude of 2000 meters. A good area for birding and with the right weather condition you can see the Himalayan mountain […]
