Mountains

We are up on the edge of the Jotunheimen by Vinstre lake at 1027 metres. There is still some snow on the ground here and higher up on Valdresflya we could see there was still a considerable amount of snow. On the lake here were 3 Long-tailed Ducks (havelle) which are presumably waiting for the ice on their breeding lakes to disappear. Also a few Common (svartand) and Velvet Scoter (sjøorre) and surpisingly 4 Cormorants (storskarv) resting on an island.
On the way up we had an immature Golden Eagle (kongeørn) flying over the road and when we stopped to admire it an adult also flew over.
