Hedmark Installment VIII - The Rustic Family

As I’ve mentioned before I revisited the Rustic Bunting site and amazingly discovered a youngster already out of the nest, although not fledged. It is normal for this ground nesting species that the young leave the nest before they can fly but never the less it was actually quite alarming to see this youngster hopping around on the ground calling for his parents especially when I considered how important he (or she) may be for the future survival of this species in Norway.
