So winterseason was over about 4.March and time for doing something with the family!!
So what happends? 16.March the winter came and LOOOOTS of snow. Wenche asked “ could we try the Golden Eagle hide?" Hm! Have not been feeding for a week and it’s saturday, mybe we try in November. But you know, when wifes get something in their head you just have to do what they say. Even sleep in a hide a Saturday night.

So Saturday evening we went to the Golden Eagle hide about 2300 to have the night there. Better than start 0400 in a Sunday morning. Sleeping? Not much. Heard the Golden Eagle calling around 0600 and also Sea Eagle calling. Rock’n Roll this will be a great day. BUT! Golden eagle came but just to fast to get a picture because she got a young Sea Eagle on hear back! Nothing!! Shit!!

Got some ok Eurasian Jay pictures and we went back home about 1200, had to go back to take care of Juster (dog). After a nice Sunday dinner Wenche said “ I go back tonight and try Monday , maybe i can get my first Golden Eagle picture”
I could not because it was also a good day to do some more fishing  for the Sea Eagles. Have new guest coming for fishing Sea Eagles .

At 1700 in the afternoon Monday, a smiling girl came back , i can tell you, she was crying!! She had Eagles more or less all day and she was SOOOOOO happy. She got great pictures but i think  to be there alone and meet this amazing birds sitting in the trees , looking at you!! It’s more than pictures, it’s a meeting in nature which you never can explain. Must try this to understand.

Winter season is soon over

My winter season starts at 1. Nov and i stop about 10.March. This have been a different year. It started with a few winterstorms, realy hard and than a few weeks with good old winter. But the storms did some damage.

Looks good in early December 2013. Lauvsnes on a winterday.

Minna is cleaning the boat for a Desember day out with Sea Eagles in falling snow. Eagles are great all year and also in falling snow. Difficult, but great fun.

Hungry Gull in Desember and it was a LOT!!!

Nice people from the magazine Natur&Foto.  They got great pictures.

Last sun and last trip out with the eagles was about 18th Des, stil good light !!

My new christmas hat. look great!

During last days of Des 2013 all snow was gone. We had lots of nice walks in the mountains during Christmas. Realy great days with family and friends.

During one of the mountain walk i found this stone, did not know what is was before someone called me and said “ This is a knife from the young stoneage, about 5000 years old”

January and most of Feb have been realy different this year, no rain and no snow.Vey dry and we had a terrible fire south in Flatanger, mountains where burning and 63 houses, cabins and sea houses when into the fire. Really bad.

Part of Småværet who was realy bad. But everyone say they will build up again so people are strong!!

But even in this fire situation I had guests, and Jean-Michel and his group did well.

And Luigi  and Andre with their group.

So to all guest who have been here and make it possible for me to have a full time work as the “eagleman”  Thank you.
Have been people here more or less since 1.Nov last year and in the beginning of March i can have my first day of since 28.Des. Thank you all.
Now we go for spring and summer but it’s possible to have a go also in March and April. I am here.
All the best from the Eagleman

Holiday 2013

As a full time guide you dont realy have much holiday in summer.This year i had one week in August and than you think  “what to do ?”

 Mountain is calling and Edvard Løfsnæs and my brother in law Martin Klocke+ Juster did a 5 days trip with us in the beautiful area of Steinfjellet in Namsskogan. We had a realy hard walk up to the cabin, to much of everything in the backpack!! TO MUCH!!! I was realy tired when we reached the cabin after 3 hours walking, if you can call the last hour walking. I was like an Adder!
But for My wife Wenche and myself it’s easy realy.

But this is a real holiday for us. It’s amazing nature, great fishing, cloudberries, birds, good wine, great friends, cold water for swimming, brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!! I’ll tell you!
In this area , you feel just so relaxed, hard to explain but you are just filling up your body and head with pure positiv  energy, free to get from the nature.

But i also have the best work you can get, after a week away you are  ready to meet new people who want to have a good time in Flatanger, to meet our nature at the coast.
So in this pictures you can see it’s not bad!!  Ready to meet new people in 2014. So much to do around here.
