Nuolihaukka

Hobby (Falco Subbuteo). Adult, 29.7.2008, Keminmaa.

 

This summers last raptor ringing trip - I guess as all other pirds of prey have left their nests...exept Ospreys and Honey Buzzards and Hobbies.. Found a nest of Hobby from Kirvesaapa, a lovely big swamp area just behind Kemi.

 

In that area nests about 6-10 pairs of Hobbies, and I guess that same amount of cranes too. Once saw 11 mooses from one point etc...If Kirvesaapa would locate 500 km south it surely would be a National Park....up here it just some swamp.

 

In these last swamp trips I have tried to collect cloudberries but this year seems to be quite poor...found just some to my mouth.
