Autumn in Lapland 18th September 2008

Cloudy with showers today and a cold southerly wind.

We went walking today to explore some other lakes.

The colours are just so beautiful even on a dull day.

We found a large number of droppings around the edge of this lake. The owner had clearly been feeding on berries and I was told by a local that they are beaver droppings.

Also found cranberries on a boggy area near to the lake.

At lunchtime we stopped for a brew

And cooked salami, tomato and green pepper kebabs.

Went really well with some local bread

I found a glass bottle in the edge of the lake so demonstrated to Liam and Phoebe that you can boil water in a bottle.

Birds for the day were; Goldcrest, Redpoll, Waxwing, Fieldfare, Siskin, White Wagtail and Willow Warbler (there were no birds on the lakes at all) and we saw 1 female Moose in the forest.
