Værøy day 7 photos

Here are the photos from the last day on Værøy. It took a long time to go through them as I had taken over 600 plus some video. As always it is a joy just going through the pictures and remembering the creatures depicted. Hope they will be just as enjoyable for the readers of this blog although I suspect I will publish far too many…

My third sighting of Olive-backed Pipit (sibirpiplerke) and finally a self-found bird without ring and which allowed good photo 

with the island of Mosken and the Lofotens in the background

together with a Meadow Pipit (heipiplerke)

which then annoyed the OBP

Gyr Falcon (jaktfalk) - despite the range and poor photo this is my best views of this species

Rock Pipit (skjærpiplerke) in a tree 
Twites (bergirisk) were very numerous this year

Killer Whalte (spekkhogger)

a mother and youngster

the dorsal fin on the bull was so large that it was floppy

one of the younger animals was playful

here the whale is at around 2km range and the snow capped mountains are in the Bodø area and are around 75km away!!

clear tracks from an Otter with the tail having left its mark

among the Otter tracks were also these smaller tracks which must be from Brown Rat that I guess had follwed after the Otter in the hope of find a fish carcass and some food

this Small Copper (ildgullvinge) is the latest record in Nordland county by a few weeks

Small Tortoiseshell (neslesommerfugl) and Painted Ladies (tistelsommerfugl)
