Arctic Tern

Terns are a familiar sight where there is water nearby and small fish to prey on. In my opinion one of the most lovely and elegant birds when in flight. A little less elegant when shuffling around on its feet.

Arctic tern, pictured above is the longest migrating bird in the world. It migrates from the summer of the the north to the shores of the Antartic and back again. Amazing considering the small size of the bird as well.

As wildlife goes, not many species feel so majestic and beautiful as eagles. No wonder they are one of the most commonly used signs of Empires and Emperors past. Steller’s Sea Eagle is one of the biggest raptors in the world and also one of the most beautiful in my mind as well.


Bohemian waxwing

Winter has arrrived here in Helsinki. The first snow has drifted gently down and as the temperature has not risen back to the positive side of the scale some of the snow has actually stayed around.

Bohemian waxwings are a lovely species of birds which can now be seen around in small or big hosts of birds. They eat the berries still in trees.
