Autumn in Lofoten

Even if autumn is the time of year when nature falls to rest, it is a lot going on. This is a compilation of photos from the Lofoten Islands last fall.

Many birds migrate trough the islands during fall.
Wren (Tryglodytes tryglodytes).

A Dunnock (Prunella modulars) fades into the surroundings.

The Lesser Whitetroath (Sylvia curruca) is a
rather uncommon guest in the islands.

Shorebirds follow the outer coastline of the islands during fall migration.
Ruff (Philomacus pugnax) (left) and Grey Plowers (Pluvialis squatarola).

among the late autumn moths.

When the hunting season starts, the Elk (Alces laces) is hard to approach.

Northern Hawk Owls (Surnia ulula) was quite numerous this fall.
