info

These pictures were taken in Jastarnia in Juna 2014. Unfortunately, the group of female Wigeons was rather apprehensive and didn’t let me approach them more closely, not nearer than 100 metres. I took several documentary pictures that initiate the gallery of this species on my website. The Wigeon weigh up to one kilogram and their wingspan is up to 80 cm.

The Eurasian wigeon in Iceland was nearly as skittish as during my first encounter with this species in Poland. Nevertheless I managed to take a few pictures of Eurasian wigeons which enrich my previous documentary pictures in the gallery of this species.

On the way to Nordcapp on one occasion I was lucky to encounter Eurasian wigeons in the town of Karasjok, in a river bend, not far from the Sami Parliament. Unfortunately the wigeons were quite far away and they were very skittish. I have uploaded just a few photographs, framed to a great extent.

I have to admit that this time there was no success in Iceland when it comes to Eurasian wigeons. We have seen them many times, even in flocks over a hundred individuals, but they have always been skittish and could not be approached. We also tried to use the hide but we failed as well. Nevertheless, the previous documentary gallery was not good, and these photos I managed to take this time are better, so the gallery has been rebuilt. Nobody knows if the better time or place will come for the Eurasian wigeons to be more likely to pose.
