The Fight to Save Trosa Nature

Some links to posts about the fight to save Trosa nature and a few of my own pictures from today.

INTRODUCTION

It will be no news to regular followers of this blog that I have been supporting Anna in her fight to protect nature in her part of Sweden for some time. In this blog post I share links to some of her recent posts on this issue, and urge you to follow them up. At the end there are some photos of mine from today featuring creatures I saw while out walking this morning.

SETTING THE SCENE –

VICTOR, YANNO & DUNNO

The beautiful area of Sweden in which Trosa lies is threatened by a proposal to build a big new road which will bring large amounts of money to a few and destruction of priceless natural beauty as an inevitable consequence. This tale sets out the story of the road building plan through three characters, Victor, Yanno & Dunno. The feature graphic shows Yanno & Dunno as puppets being controlled by Victor:

ANNA’S REASONING

Anna laid out the case for her side in a post published on July 17 with the title “Därför vill vi spara naturen i Trosa – Why we want to save Trosa nature“. Below is the feature infographic from that post:

TROSA’S NATURE

Anna has produced three posts in quick succession showing some of the nature that is on show in her part of the world. We start with:

This time your sample picture is of a seal:

Finally, to bring you right up to date we have…

This third post about the wildlide of Trosa and the Tureholm Peninsula is devoted to birds. My bait to lure you in is a Heron…

SOME OF MY PICTURES FROM TODAY

I finish this piece with some pictures from earlier today, starting with…

A LITTLE EGRET SEEN IN THE RIVER NAR

The point where the River Nar joins the Great Ouse is about 10-15 minutes walk from the centre of King’s Lynn, and I regularly see interesting stuff there, but before today I had not seen a Little Egret there (as well as the two pictures I took of the bird I have a picture of the relevant page of my bird book):

My second set of pictures are…

A SNAIL, A DUCKLING AND A HOVERING INSECT

The footpath above which this little beauty was hovering does not make a great background, bjut I hope you can see the delicate wings that keep that body airborne.

I am a keen photographer, so that most of my own posts contain photos. I am a keen cricket fan and often write about that subject. I also focus a lot on politics and on nature.

  1. Your pictures are beautiful. How interesting to see grey heron and white egret in the same post. Thank you so much for this post. I will reblog to show my Trosa readers that we are not alone in the fight for nature.

  2. Reblogged this on Annas Art – FärgaregårdsAnna and commented:
    Till alla som vill skydda Trosas natur – vi kämpar inte ensamma. Vår information om Trosas skyddsvärda natur har nått utanför landets gränser. Se denna post och klicka vidare till ursprungsinlägget och lämna kommentarer där.

    Look all Save Trosa nature supporters. We’re not alone. The word has reached outside Swedish borders to Aspiblog who makes an excellent view over the struggle for saving Trosa nature. Check out the original post and leave comments over at Thomas blog/Anna
