Den 3:e februari publicerade Västerbottens Folkblad en artikel om Kurt-Olof Edström och om hans drömjobb, tjäder inventering.

Bilden på Kurt-Olof och tjädertuppen är fotograferad av mig. I början av april 2010 följde jag med Kurt-Olof ut för att titta till en spelgalen tjädertupp. Spelplatsen hade avverkad kände sig säkert lite vilse…

Tjädertuppen anföll oss och Kurt-Olof håller den på behörigt avstånd med ena skidstaven. Jag fick även se tuppen på nära håll! Ena staven fastnade på under vingen medan jag försökte hålla balansen på skidorna och fotografera 🙂

Close encounter

In early April I followed Kurt-Olof Edström to check out a capercaillie game.  The male capercaillie  is aggressive and attack everyone who comes into their playground at spring.

We went to the site on skiis and used our rods to keep the rooster at a safe distance. It beats with its wings and bits and that can be painful. So that’s nothing I wanted to experience 🙂

I also would point out that we not tried to and wanted to hurt the capercaillie in any way.

The capercaillie is formidable at close quarters. And it was an experience I will not forget!

And finally some technique. I used Nikon D3 with 24/2,8 and 70-200/2,8
