Great Grey Owl
It's fantastic to have a look in the eyes of an Great Grey Owl. There is one south of Karlstad, in Hammarö. I had the pleasure to see it on the 28 of January and it is still there. I saw one also in september 2008 here in Karlstad. They are usually very rare to see on this latitude.

First skating this year!
Today was a really nice day to try the ice on Lake Vänern. It was silent, just to listen the scratch when the skates touched the ice. After a fun ride we could enjoy a cup of warm coffe and some sandwiches which tasted deliscious. Feels good to have done at least some wintersport this winter with almost no snow.

Train spotting

Well, it is not exactly train spotting I’m thinking about sitting on the train. Maybe why the wild animals dosn't avoid rails and trains. Did you know that there are about 4 500 accidents per year between trains and animals in Sweden. From the 1 of July in 2012 there will be an obligation for the driver of the train to report the accident to the Police, which have not been the case so far.

New Minister of Environment
Sweden has now a new minister of environment, Lena Ek, former member in the European Parliament for the Swedish centre party (read more here: . She will substitute the former minister, Andreas Carlgren, when the new leader for the centre party, Annie Lööf makes some changes among the leading charaters in the party and the primeminister Fredrik Reinfeldt reorganised the government. It will be interesting to see if the change will mean any changes in the environmental politics? For example the question about the hunting of wolves, were the former minister achieved to cause some discussion?
