Birds in the Botanic Garden


The fieldfares are returning.


House sparrow




The starlings are also returning.

Seen in the Botanic Garden in Helsinki 27.3.2014.

I'm linking to I'd Rather B Birdin'.



The first butterfly




The first butterfly this spring!
I saw it in Espoo Central Park
by lake Mössenkärr, 29.3.2014.

 I'm not good at ID:ing butterflies,
but I believe this is a large tortoiseshell.
(Please correct me if I'm wrong.)
