    Walross is not a common sight along the Norwegian coast to my knowledge, but here is one that got as far south as Fosnavaag:

    Do you know how the little cygnets are doing now, in Woudrichem? I must wander down to the river here and see if I can see any. There used to be swans just near the wherry cut (where the scout hut is) but then a few years ago they moved further downstream.
    And that jay! You are lucky to have one in your area, although they are not the friendliest birds to have about. There's a jackdaw family here up in the big tree near the maltings conversion - and the racket all day. I don't know how many youngsters there are but the extremely loud, insistent "chjack" call from them must drive the people living in the maisonettes in that corner of the building absolutely mad. The other week I was thriled to see an adult come down to my bird bath/water vessel/sundial and it comes quite frequently now.
    And I have a new blackbird eating out of my hand, remember dear old AB? Most of it is for nestlings, but it does stop to gobble down a few sultanas for itself just once in a while. Blackbirds have as many as three broods each year, so they are frantically searching for food for a long time. My bird seems to be rather a small one, or perhaps the poor creature is half starved! I watched the other day as, with a beakful of sultanas, it was beseiged by a really insistent youngster. My bird went for it to scare it away, (It was probably some other blackbird's offspring) but the wretched little beggar fluffed up its feathers and lunged back.
    When my mother was alive she aften used to tell me the antics of the birds that she had watched out of the kitchen window, quite forgetting what she had intended to do there!

    across the pond here there were a swan coupple had there nest

    (later they placed those fences also at the long side)



    and they get 5 chicks



    but they are gone now.
    they were seen in the middle of the village,they catch them and brought them to Woudrichem.
    so sad ,but there issn't that much traffic near that pond as here, busy road here, it's safer for them.

    You must be psychic, Thijs! I was only thinking recently that we never see any of your gull photos nowadays and I decided that I must do a grumble. Then they appear.
    Were they taken on the way to the docks - I see the post and an arm of a wind turbine in one of them and remember when we stopped near some on one of our ship-spottung trips?
    MORE.

    Dane, next time you go fishing in your pond, make sure you have your gun with you as well:

    I would probably pee in my pants had I seen two fins swimming near me like that... (correction: pee in the water.... )
