Truger :: Snowshoeing


I forrige uke kjøpte vi truger til de to minste og i går etter skoletid var det tid til å prøve dem ut :)

We bought snowshoes for the two youngest last week, and yesterday we had time to try them out after school :)


På enga og i skogen bak huset var det mange spor å følge. Her er det haren som har hoppet forbi.

On the meadow and in the forest behind the house there was  lots of tracks to follow. Here has a hare jumped by.






Er litt vanskelig å se, men her er det spor etter et ekorn og av en fugl som har landet og tatt av igjen. Mest sannsynlig ei rype.

It's a bit hard to see, but this is tracks from a squirrel and from a bird who has landed and taken off again. Most likely a grouse.


Ungene fulgte sporene til ekornet opp i skogen, men derfra var det ikke flere spor å se da det hadde hoppet opp i trærne ;)

The kids followed the squirrel tracks up in the forest, but from there there was no more tracks as it had jumped up in the trees ;)


Enda et spor av vingene til rypa. Den hadde gått rundt og beitet i små skogen.

Another tracks from grouse wings. It had been walking around the small bushes and grazed.

Snø sirkler :: Snow circles

Etter at jeg så filmen Snow Circles for noen dager siden visste jeg at dette måtte ungene og jeg prøve å lage selv.  De ble kanskje ikke like visuelt fine som Sonja sine, men vi hadde det artig likevel :)

After watching the film Snow Circles a few days ago I just knew this was something the kids and I had to try. They are perhaps not as visually beautiful as Sonja's, but we had fun nonetheless :)

På leit etter dyre spor :: Looking for animal tracks

Fox tracks

Nok en dag med strålende vær. Ungene har vinterferie så vi kan være så mye ute vi bare vil :)
Mens guttene var i akebakken dro Eirin og jeg på leit etter dyrespor. De letteste å finne var reve spor. De var på kryss og tvers over hele myra og opp i skogen.

Another day of glorious weather. The kids have their winterbreak so we can be out playing all day long :) While the boys were in the hills sledding, Eirin and I went in search of animal tracks. The easiest to find was the fox tracks. They were criss-crossed over the marsh and into the woods.

Vi fant også en god del av disse små sporene. Tror det er mus til venstre og snømus eller røyskatt til høyre.

We also found quite abit of these small tracks. I think it is mouse to the left and least weasel or stoat to the right.



Moose tracks and pits in the snow where they have been sleeping

Til slutt fant vi masse elgspor og groper i snøen hvor de har sovet om natta.

And finally we found moose tracks and pits in the snow where they have been sleeping during the night.
