Lapland 2020

Veröffentlicht Schreibe einen Kommentar

Another June, another field season in Ammarnäs: we continued our Dotterel and survey work in the Vindelfjällen Nature Reserve as in previous years. Clouds were very, very, very rare this year. Instead we had a crazy heat wave and rather mediterranean than arctic weather. Offering less suitable light for photography. For that reason we entirely […]

Lapland 2019

For the fifth time I went to Swedish Lapland in June to spend another field work season in Vindelfjällen to continue the research on arctic breeding birds, particularly Dotterels. This year we have spent quite some time in the birch forest for surveys and photographing forest birds. The season has started with very good rodent […]

Morocco

Once again, in February Jan, Lukas and I went south, this year we chose Morocco to explore some vast desert areas and mountain ranges for nice North African birds, particularly desert birds. It has been a very nice and straightforward trip with very friendly people, many dreambirds, fantastic sceneries and magic moments in the silence […]

In July we continued our journey from Swedish Lappland to the Lofoten islands. Exploring the Scandinavian Arctic coast has always been an avid desire for me. Kittiwakes were breeding almost everywhere. Hiking in the dramatic mountainous landscape revealed some nice birds as well. We had the great chance to visit the small uninhabitet island Storfjell, […]

More details about the projects can be found on our overthetreeline blog. Unfortunately most of the Long-tailed Skuas abandoned their nests but gathered in big flocks. We started a new […]

In February I went with Jan and Lukas to Fuerteventura to to see and photograph some (desert) birds while escaping the cold German winter for a while. A detailed birding trip can be found here. We expected good birding opportunities but did not expect good conditions for photography at all. We spent most of the early […]

Winter im Wallis – Bartgeier am Gemmipass

Veröffentlicht Schreibe einen Kommentar

Im Februar war ich zusammen mit Jan, Joachim, Lukas, Ralph und Torsten am Gemmipass, um Bartgeier zu fotografieren. Neben den imposanten Bartgeiern ließen sich auch Kolkraben, Alpendohlen, Schneesperlinge und Alpenbraunellen auf zum Teil kürzeste Distanz fotografieren. Wir hatten unglaubliches Glück mit den Bedingungen: Mehrfach flogen Bartgeier sehr nah vorbei und Alpenbraunelle und Schneesperling liefen uns […]
