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

Norra Järvafältet; 27th Febuary 2012

Above and below; One of three Long-tailed tits at Faboda Gård today...







Willow Tit, not so abundant with just a singleton at Faboda Gård. A yeartick nonetheless..

An enjoyable day out with John Costello started at Norra Järvafältet, though no sign of either the Tawny Owl or Brambling st the site. After sitting at the Ravalen feeding station we moved on to find Hawfinch, only hearing a single bird briefly...
Onwards to Faboda Gård where a few yearticks were added, best of all was Willow Tit. Crested Tit, Coal Tit and Long-tailed Tit followed after a while and we moved on, enjoying great views of a cracking male Green Woodpecker on our way back...
