I have lots of “friends” out there. Miguel, Maurizio, Arnold, Florian, Gill +++ But I must say that the Otter is my favorite animal.
In Flatanger we have a very good population of Otters. Where the Otters live there is also a good place to live for the Sea Eagles. All time of year you can see Sea Eagles stealing fish from the Otter. Our coast is rich and it’s no problems for the Otter to find more than he need. But the eyes of a Sea Eagle is just amazing, in 1-2 km they can see a smal fish in the sea, and they easily can see an Otter.
But the Otter dont care, if the eagle steals he find a new one, easy!! And they have fun, in the winter you can see them having fun, like walk up on the top of an island and than slide down in the snow. So this Otter is around now. The pictures are taken in 24 hours , so you see natures changing fast right now.
Hope he will be around for some more days so my new guests can meet him!! Great fun but he is a wild animal and he is a great fisher, can see him fishing in the lake and river.
My winter feeding season is over now, having some days just to be an Otter:-) So to all who have been here in Flatanger this winter, THANK YOU!! Have been a good year even if the Goshawk have been difficult. She lost here husband last spring. She is now calling for a new one, hope he will be a good bird for my guests!!
I had a chat with my friend this evening. Yes, I have a friend who looks like me, but he has been there for many, many years. He is the “Troll”. He is living close to the sea on the way to my Sea Eagle hide. He is sitting there because he was to late back from a meeting with his girlfriend, sunrise for a Troll is dangerous. Sun makes them to solid rock!!
I talk to him when I have a walk in the evening. He is sitting there,thinking. He is so nice, looking out in this beautiful nature. This is the land of the Trolls. Every day, every night, rain, snow, cold and hot, he is there. I sometimes ask him what he thinks about humans and nature. 1 Feb they started Lynx hunting in Norway. This amazing animal were free to kill for some weeks. We could take out 166 animals!!!!!
Mr. Troll! I saw some tracks of Lynx some days ago. But we keep it secret, me and you. My dream is to have a Lynx sitting on your head in the sunset. But as long as there are people on this planet, no animals can feel free.
Good night from Ole.
