Phylloscopus trochilus

Sci: Phylloscopus trochilus, No: Løvsanger, Eng: Willow warbler, It: Lui grosso

Dear All,
A very common bird this month, probably the most common of all birds in Norway,
there are 5-10 million of them. 

Photo taken at Ustaoset, August 1, with my (vintage) Canon FD 500mm handheld,
just after we had been swimming in Lake Biskola with the Buchanan family.

Towards the end of the month, much more excitingly, Antonella spotted a MYRHAUK (Hen Harrier) in a tree 20 meters from our cabin, but that one didn't want to sit still for a photo.
