I’ve heard it a few times when I get up in the morning, they are chopping down trees in the forest. I can’t see anything from here where I live but I sure can hear it. I have been expecting it since all trees have the same age and they started chopping them down some years ago.
Around 65 years ago not a single tree grew here so that is the age of the forest where I take all my photos. This area was totally open and most of it was pastures and some fields were used to grow grain but the ground is so poor here that there wasn’t any use continuing, so they planted trees everywhere instead.
Over hundred years ago the bog wasn’t a bog either, it was a shallow lake and rather big to be honest. They had drained it for quite some time but never managed to drain it totally, there’s still a tiny lake where the bog was as deepest. The beekeeper has actually taken a few baths in it and the water feels oily he says.
Today they aren’t allowed to take care of the oldest ditches in the bog, so the water level will slowly rise again even if it won’t become the big lake it once was. It will most likely become a big swamp instead, lucky us because that will most likely mean we’ll have more flies here during summer 🙂 🙂 Well I guess the birds will love it 🙂
I’ve been out on the net checking wildlife cameras and there are lots of different ones. I don’t feel a need to have one that sends me messages to my mobile phone every time it takes a photo, with my luck it will take loads of photos showing two cats, Bertil and Teodor :-)But the laws around these cameras are very fuzzy here.
I can hide in trees and bushes taking photos of people passing by without they knowing it but I can’t put up a wildlife camera doing the exact same thing 🙂 It is the law we have here that allows anyone to walk anywhere in nature no matter who owns the land, “Allemansrätten” or “right of public access” law we have here that stops us from putting up these wildlife cameras. I can however put it up in my garden since the law doesn’t include gardens and it might be legal to put it up in the dogyard but since one can see through the fence it most likely isn’t legal, just in case I would photograph a human. But I can hide there myself and take a photo with my normal camera 🙂
It is time to get something to eat.
Have a great day!
