As usual our summer holiday has started with a few days at the cabin we are so lucky to be able to borrow just south of Oslo. I would normally be butterflying here and commenting on the large number of species I have seen but this year despite it being sunny there have been very few species (in stark contrast to Oslo). In fact I have only seen 11 species plus a couple of interesting moths. I have no good reason for the lack of butterflies but hopefully it is just timing.
The only specific birding I have done is to look for the Nightjars we found last year. They have moved 500m from last year but er had 4 birds flying together that very memorably flew right over our heads. Activity started very late (23:25) so my plans of great photos will have to wait for another occasion.
