Eggs by wild birds in Norrland, an area in the North of Sweden, are badly damaged by poision. Old poision from the last Century when scandals like DDT and PCB have appeared once again. Birds are now, once again, starting to show defects on laid eggs. The TV program “Vetenskapens Värld” shows the poisioned eggs from our Sea eagles for the viewers in today show on SVT2.
The old storages of this poision in the North of Sweden are perhaps leaking and the birds are getting sick. They need to investigate more. They do not yet know the reasons for the birds getting poisioned. Is it new or old poision causing these problems?
Resources are missing to continue the reseach. Our Sea Birds have told us something is serously wrong, according to Vetenskapens Värld.

I have been out to a public lake and feed the birds. Me and the family members. We gave food to the birds. I never eat the final pieces of the bread in the freezer. So we gathered all the last small pieces and gave it to the birds.
During the feeding of birds I saw a goose that was injured, but it seem to be able to live fine. It could swim and walk. And people feed the birds, perhaps it gets some food to. However part of its wing was dislocated. I tried to call the city, but no emergency number was available during the holidays, but I found a way to communicate the birds injury, so I did. I hope it gets help. However it was fine in condition, so I have good hopes for the bird.
Most of the birds where goose, ducks and swans.
Well, last time I was out there were a lot of birds that wanted food when we walked pass them. I felt sorry since I didn’t have any food with me at that time. Therefore I took the time today to finally do it. Feed the birds. Not that I am not feeding the birds in my garden. I am feeding them sunflower seeds.
The snow outside is melting since it is warmer weather now. So the white snow has started to look like dirt indeed. Not that lovely as white snow can be. Some kids had built the snow bivouac outdoors. Those can be dangerous for kids that do not understand the danger of playing inside them. The snow can fall down and suffocate the kid inside. I am happy it is melting away. It’s not easy to tell a smaller kid it is dangerous… they have no understanding of the concept dangerous with cause and effect on this level.
