|Capercaillie Tetrao urogallus by Tomaž Velikonja|
|Capercaillie lekking habitat in Norway spruce Picea abies forest|
After the Capercaillie I had quite good views of a singing PYGMY OWL, which attracted the attention of a "cloud" of Chaffinches, tits, Treecreepers and Goldcrests. In the forest I also had the good variety of upland conifer birds like Nutcracker (1), Bullfinch, Siskin, Crossbill, Crested & Coal Tit and so on. Mammals included 2 Red Deer, 4 Roe Deer, 1 Brown Hare and 1 Red Squirrel.
|Pygmy Owl Glaucidium passerinum - lovely as always!|
