This last Saturday we organized a guided tour with Eurasian lynx in Uppsala county. The event was put together by Biotopia.
We started the day with looking at typical tracks from lynx and wolf. Then we headed out into the field and soon came across tracks from red fox, roe deer, badger and other animals.
Not so long after, we discovered fresh tracks from a lynx that walked there just a few hours prior. We back-tracked the lynx, looking at its behaviour, scent marks, scats and other things. It was a great day out in the field.
The week before this lynx tour we did one with gray wolf in the northern parts of the county, in the area where the only wolf pack in Uppsala county lives.
We might organize more of these events in the coming winter season. Shoot me or Biotopia an email if you think it might be interesting to join in some time.
