Research trip through Great Britain & Ireland

Wow – the summer is over and I haven’t written anything. Well, it has been a busy time. I am on a research trip in Great Britain and Ireland – trying to record the calls of Common Crossbills (Loxia curvirostra) for my PhD.

There is very few time to photograph. I have taken almost no photos, just a few of landscape. Nevertheless, here are some of them:

I got up very early every morning and had the chance to see many sunrises and sunsets. This is a sunrise in southern England
