Spring - What can you photograph?

What can you

Spring period lasts from 25th April to 15th May

Everybody loves spring!

Nature wakes up after a long winter sleep. The migratory birds come back and together with the resident birds it creates a lively sound and sight. The sound of all these singing birds gives a good feeling for both body and soul.

This is the time when Capercaille and Black Grouse are having their mating season. The most beautiful adventure of the spring can be witnessed here.

We have a lovely place where it is possible to photograph  Capercaillies, observing them from a camouflage tent. When observing the Black Grouse doing its mating ritual we use a solid photo shed.

The Sea eagle starts collecting fish for their chicks. Thousands of Pink footed Goose land in the area waiting to get ready for the giant move to Svalbard, while the  Slavonian Greb (Podiceps auritus) in the water is dancing in the spring sunshine.

This is a lovely time here in Flatanger. We love spring.
