Heavy fog made birding a mission impossible today – with one exception: some buzzards kept a close watch over IKEA's parking lot, probably hoping for some delicious rodents. Torp, Uddevalla, on January 21, 2017.

This is actually a rare bird! This glaucous gull has decided to spend the winter in our small coastal town, and to let older people feed it with large chunks of bread (the summer diet is more like eggs and young birds). Look at the size of it compared to the common herring gulls mounted on the roof! Hasselbacken, Uddevalla, on January 20, 2017.

The long-tailed tits came back today! Don't know which is worst; dusk, like yesterday, or sharp sunlight, like today, when trying to get a decent pic. Hedegärde, Uddevalla, on January 5, 2017.

Today, we hade some unexpected but most welcome guests at our birding station: a pack of long-tailed tits. These are perhaps the cutest of all birds in Sweden! Hedegärde, Uddevalla, on January 4, 2017.

Long distance, and difficult light, but the big lonely bird sitting on a small rock in the water (in the center of the photo) is actually a white-tailed eagle. We waited for it to come closer, but apparently that was a very good rock to spend the day on. Many other birds around, but only the crows seemed to worry. Naturum Hornborgasjön, Broddetorp, on October 8, 2016.
