About the blog

I have no heavy training... Barely Elementary School. Preferred the wilderness, it became my university, but I got muddy boots and experience instead of School knowledge so my English was therefore quite inadequate. This blog is a project to improve my skills in English language.

We all have our own universe, welcome to visit mine.

Vimyren Nature Reserve.

Nature ConservationPosted by Uncle Henry Sun, April 22, 2012 21:33:16

165 hectares of wilderness! A pearl among the nature reserves that I care, always exciting to visit. Here I have traced both the wolf, lynx and bear over the years. Beaver is easy to see along Jolen, the creek that crosses the reserve. A friend also had a fantastic meeting with otters, during a night fishing trip, last year.

The reserve is known as one of the area's best venues for capercaillie. An amazing spectacle that I wish that everyone would experience once in their lives. Just bring your sleeping bag, lie down under a tree and wait for dawn.

Here is also a good place to listen to different kinds of owls. I myself have heard the pygmy owl, boreal owl, tawny owl, Nothern Hawk owl, Ural owl and last year I heard for the first time in my life, a Great Grey Owl. A dull and distinctive sound.

When I was abused by a Ural owl in the reservation, must be told at another time. Be careful out there!
