JUNE 2015 Usually I try to avoid having expectations at all. The same goes for travelling.

Just can’t get enough

October 2014 … is not refering to commercial bird sound records, but to autumn. Autumn isn’t just when I was born, what obviously made this season to something special to me, it is the time of several major events in nature: bird migration to the wintering grounds, Red Deer rut, vocal activities by owls and […]
