Tjeld Bird

By EllieEdge  
The picture is taken near Lofoten in the north of Norway. This bird had a nest close to the farm so every time we went past that area it would circle over our heads. I felt a bit guilty by staying there to take pictures, but not guilty enough to leave. Smile
I got my camera this summer so the picture is taken with the standard "Sports" mode.
The type of bird is called "Tjeld" (pronounced "Shell" in Norwegian) but I do not know the english name for it.

Great sharp capture and you really get the sense he's trying to chase you off.
