I just uploaded many new photos into the archive of skuas, gulls, terns, skimmers, auks, rollers, hoopoes, kingfishers, bee-eaters, owls and woodpeckers. Have fun browsing through them!

Few weeks ago, I returned from a trip to the Baikal area in southeastern Russia. Together with Malte B. we were looking for different kind of animals and pristine landscape. It was a sucessful trip and I will surely show you further photos soon
