Den har nok en fast rute den tar ;)
Men jeg var for treg til å ta bilde av den i dag.

Morsomt :)

Det har vidst noget at gøre med at den markerer sit territorium, så det passer jo meget godt, at det er samme stolpe :) Men samme tid...

@ Jeannette - Jeg så den samme fuglen i dag, i samme stolpe og samme klokkeslett som i går... Så den i går kl 9.15 og i dag 9.17 ca hehe... Den har nok fast stolpe til fast tid =)
