A little bit of this and a little bit of that
The Peregrine was eating her(?) lunch on the 9th floor of the government building again yesterday with plucked feathers floating down to the ground. I wonder whether the person working in the office whose window ledge she has made into a restaurant is aware of this wonderful natural bloodbath that occurs there everyday.
Otherwise I have clocked up my first Mallard of the year and more excitingly found 2 Brambling and 3 Chaffinch at one of the feeding stations in Maridalen. These are very scarce winter birds around Oslo and especially so with the cold weather and snow we are having. Interestingly no Crested Tits this time but Red Squirrels at both stations feeding on sunflower seeds.
