Winter is here

 Fallow deer in the first snow.
This was the best photo my camera could make. They are far off to the other side of a very wet and muddy field. Impossible to walk on if you don´t want 2 kg dirt on your boots. Maybe that is why they always stay close to forest edge. Not that muddy and easy to run off.

 This one is still alone. No friens showing up and now winter is here.

The fieldfare was very active this day. Searching for berries,

Mostly dippers

 I like the posture it has in this shot  😀


The White-throated Dipper is fun to watch but so fast it is actually tricky to catch it. It is like: once you see it then you don´t. It has a habit of disappearing as soon as you pull the trigger. Luckily with digital it is not expensive to take a lot of shots.
Still only one bird seen.

The Eurasian wren - GĂ€rdsmyg

There are only one wren at this place that I have seen. It is quick and like to hide in the bushes beside the stream. I saw it flying and where it landed. Pointed my camera and hoped for the best. The image is highly enlarged so I had to look close to see it in the image.  And it is sharp! A lucky shot! But sometimes you have to bee lucky  😀💖

Rainy and foggy days critters

Dipper, still. only one has come.  Upclose the fog is not visible.

Fallow deer
Bad sighting due to fog and a very muddy field. I did not go there thid day. Makes me wonder how it feels for them to sleep in that dirt?

 The first Bohemian waxwing turned up in a treetop  outside my balcony. I think the second one, among the branches, is a Great tit.

This weeks critters, birds and deers

 Click image to enlarge!
Finally, the Dipper has arrived. This looks like a young one, the plumage is not that dark. I hope it stays and gets some company.  Last year we had three of them. They are fun to watch.

In Lake NĂ€snaren there used to be thousand of the cots. This year there are, maybe, 150. 😟
I also saw 3 of the   Smews in winter plumage, they too used to be hundreds (salskrake) 😟
Seems there were breeding issues for both species.

Fallow deer. It seems like it is the time for their rut. The herd was quite stirred. The huge buck was not there when I arrived. He came from behind me and run out in the field scaring the herd a bit and me too. He was clearly checking out some of the does. There was a few younger bucks too. But this was the main one. When he was done checking the does he came back in my direction. I thought he had seen me but luckily he did not. I was sitting in a cairn and quite safe. I did not really want any close contact with those antlers.
This buck is very dark in color so he might be the reason why so many of them tends to be darker every year.
It was a quite exciting day  😀

Critters in Costa Rica

As the weather is wet and the wildlife scarce in Sweden right now I continue to go through my Costa Rica images from 2011. Quite nice to remember  😀 Hope you like it!

Critters on my walks

 Click image to enlarge!
 This cat never likes my attention 😄 I´m not sure of it´s gender but I like it´s color.

Not sure what species this is, but I like this color too. I might call it Rusty!

Fallow deer.
Now I know where these guys are and what time they are usually there. But sneaking up on them without being seen, is hard as they are at the far side of the field.
I was finally spotted and the herd went into the forest. Except for one. This deer was watching me for about 15 min before it left too. It seemed like it was standing guard as I could hear them communicate. It was very interesting
