Maaseudulla luontosafarilla .... On a nature safari in the countryside

Niin oli paljon jo tullut muuttolintuja tuonne Inkooseen missä kesämökkimme sijaitsee. Veljeni näki harmaahaikarapariskunnankin mutta minä en niitä valitettavasti nähnyt vaikka samoilin ristiin rastiin pitkin rantoja.

So many migrating birds had already arrived to our shores in the area where our summer cottage is situated. My brother even saw grey herons but I had no sighting even if I trampled all around the shores for hours.


Räkättirastas ... Field fare


Västäräkki ... Pied wagtail


Kanadan hanhia ... Canada geese


Merihanhia ... Greylag geese


Samat lennossa ... The same in flight


Lentäviä merihanhia ja telkkäpariskunta ... Greylag geese and Goldeneyes in flight


Merimetsoja ... Cormorants


Kyhmyjoutsen ruokailee ... Mute swan feeding


Punarinta ... Robin


Laulurastas ... Throstle


Peipponen ... Chaffinch


Keltasirkku ... Yellowhammer


Mustarastas (uros) ... Blackbird (male)


Talitiaianen ... Great tit


Sama lennossa ... The same in fleight


Kuusitiainen ... Coal tit


Käpytikka ja sinitiainen yhdessä ... Spotted woodpecker and blue tit together


Talitiainen odotti vuoroansa ... The great tit waited for its turn


Kuten odotti tämä söpö kurrekin ... As waited this cute squirrel


Talitiaiset tulossa tekemään kurrelle seuraa ... Great tits flying in to make company for the squirrel


Muurahaisvilinää ... Heaps of ants

Näin myös metsäjäniksiä ja supikoiria mutta kuvaa niistä en saanut ... I also saw mountain hares and raccoon dogs but did not manage a photo of them.

Inkoo - Ingå, that's West if I remember my Finnish geography.
Great pictures of all those birds of which I maybe like the little ribin best. But don't say it to him (as I say the same thing to the other ones as well), he could repeat it.
The squirrel is quite a fellow in that tree. They're nice.

With each of your pictures,
my smile grew bigger.
By the time I reached the first squirrel image, I was sitting here giggling - thank for this wonderful tour! :-)

Heheh...I enjoyed again this story. Why do these birds don't show up here? I think they choose you to be their photographer coz they know you can do it better than me. :(

Du store så mange fugler du har greid å fange med kamera! Likte særlig de med woodpecker (tror vi kaller den Flaggspett) og Blåmeis på samme matfat! Det er vel ikke ofte å se!

Koselig å se at også våre trekkfugler nå stikker innom Skandinavia igjen. Får ta meg sammen og se om jeg finner noen jeg også! :)

Og ja - du har rett i at den blomsten min ikke er noen villblomst! Tror det er en anemone, den står i en hage i nærheten der jeg bor.

You got some great pictures on your countryside safari. I especially liked your pictures of the geese in flight.
