September Science Nature swirls with taiga birds, peeks into the dachshund’s nest and is enchanted by the swamp landscape

New Science Nature dives into the tunnel network below the old villa. What to do when my dachshund is still just expanding its century-old nest network under the stone foot of the house? Supplier Tuomas Manninen had to seriously consider the problem.

“We inherit not only the big house and the garden that has gone wild as a white-backed woodpecker, but all the bases of the house and garden: lupins, logs, death bells, rattlesnake nests on the upper balconies,

And as it soon became apparent, badgers. I have never measured or weighed a badger, but it is said to be at most a meter long and can weigh about twenty pounds. It is a giant of animal animals.

Sometimes the badger comes at the mouth of the evening on the sauna path, muzzle on the ground, clearly in its very own thoughts, which probably include earthworms, beetles and plant roots. Everyday culinaryism.

The badger might go past the foot, which was a little scary because the animal is actually quite big. That’s why it’s amusing when many acquaintances say mole when you mean badger. If a badger beats a person, it will run away, the path will be blocked, the shadows will rumble and the twigs will rattle. “

From the darkness of the cave we travel to open bogs, to the world of bogs covered with eternity and from there to Lestijoki. What a start on the river! Along it, one immediately dives into a complete fairytale forest. Large ants guard the northern shore, birches curve over the water and birds chirp. The power takes the paddler on a journey he wouldn’t want to end.

The atmospheric forest sky changes to a more open environment, which is gradually becoming swampy. The blue maidens flutter on the reedbeds, and the scents of the swamp hover in the traveller’s nose. Did you know that the eternal mounds of the bogs, the balsa, are melting? Journalist Vesa Luhta and her son made a long trip to the northern Finnish landscape.

There are only a few wing strokes of gut to the taiga covered with coniferous forests. Taiga charmers are tough northern birds. some of whom are quite confident in people. Lapland, in particular, is unique in its courage. No other bird from that just sits on your head in the middle of a walk away from the feeding place.

In the new issue, we also get to know the dance of the last butterflies of the autumn, the delicacies of the mushroom forest, the wonderful orienteering instinct of the animals and the storm bonga.

Beautiful autumn days, Science Nature reader!
