Eagle owls, Sea eagles and summer flower colours in Sleneset and Flatanger, Norway

From the shores of a still Living Sea, I can report that the Sea eagles and Eagle owls are doing very well. Up here, along the Norwegian North Sea coast lives the most dense population of these birds in the world.


The Sea eagles living from the vast riches of the sea, and the Eagle owls living on those who live from the riches of the sea (gulls, terns, geese, ducks, auks and water voles). Through the help of very friendly guides Ole Martin Dahle from Flatanger and Frode Johansen from Sleneset we managed to see more than 25 Eagle owls and about 40 Sea eagles in a few days time. And get really close to the eagles. It is an experience that I would recommend any person with any interest in nature to do at least once in your life. See the incredibly charismatic eagles sweep down and catch fish just beside the boat, 15 metres away! Along with a great flock of always hungry and wonderfully beautiful gulls of several species.


On land, the vegetation is bursting out in green and vivid colours from the sunshine 24hrs a day, in this Land of the Midnight sun. Flowers that are veritable gems in the warm evening light. Some of the true Wild Wonders of Europe!
