Norwegian Birds

This gallery contains a selection of bird images taken in Norway and Svalbard and original county (fylke) names have been used with the localities. There is no emphasis on rare birds in this gallery, although several uncommon Norwegian species are included and most images are taken without the use of a special hide with the exception of the Golden Eagle images. Many of the images are taken close to my home town Horten in Vestfold or not far from it. Norwegian species names are also included with the images to help as a local language identification key. 

Images will be continuously added to this gallery as and when they become available.
