Alan Dalton post's birding diaries and original artwork from Sweden. Established in 2006, this now long running blog is now a complete overview of my birding experiences. As an artist I greatly enjoy sketching birds in the field and you will find a wide selection of that work here, from fieldwork to finished paintings. I am very passionate about my artwork and try to depict birds in their natural habitat, as I see them in the wild. My artwork is for sale and can be viewed at http://www.alandalton.net/
As regards to my photography, since 2008 I have used a Nikon D90 DSLR camera coupled with a Sigma 150-500mm OS lens for since March 2012 for bird photography, all previous images being digiscoped. Regarding sound recording, I have been usung a Telinga Stereo Dat Mic and parabol to record birds in the field, coupled to a Marrantz 661 digital recorder, a superb piece of kit. Interest in butterflies, dragonflies and damselflies has recently seen the accquisition of a Sigma 150mm macro lens. I hope you enjoy the blog and please feel free to leave comments or contact me at alandltn@gmail.com

Tyresta National Park; 28th August 2010

Fly species, close up!


Bumblebee feeding...

Acorns now heavy on the oak trees...


Fungus species also in evidence...


Some macro images from today at Tyresta National Park. Not a lot going on birdwise, though a pair of Black Throated Divers were seen on the far side of Flaten. Lots of common passerines in evidence, notably Nuthatch, which were everywhere. Black Woodpecker was a late highlight, a male over head, later heard calling.
Luckily though lots to see elsewhere, Dragonflies, Butterflies, Insects and flora all abundant in the park, and a very enjoyable day out...
