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.

A day's work.

WolfPosted by Uncle Henry Sat, February 06, 2016 10:51:35

Early morning in the tracks of two wolves that made a short visit to the village, frightened a horse to panic, and created hot topic to discuss while visiting the villages only general store. I follow the tracks down to the lake, where the wolves have been hunting roe deer in the grove surrounding the changing cabin, at the local beach.

Then we returned to the mountains. Raven calls out, there is a moose killed by wolves somewhere in the dense forest around me, but I find it not. The tracks carry on and I follow, always looking for pee and poo. (DNA - samples that hopefully makes tracking valuable for our work)

Lunch on a stump with a view of the landscape, sunshine and a few degrees, it starts to feel like spring already. A black tit singing eagerly from the top of a fir tree, as a non-lubricated sewing machine ", sittju-sittju-sittju-sittju".

The light begins to return, working days become longer. At dusk, another wolf pair walking along a river, sometimes eerily close to the fragile ice edge. You need to be vigilant, but it is also part of the job, to assess the risks related to different types of terrain and circumstances.

I found both pee and poo during the tracking. It was a good day.
