How wonderful to see you here, Martin! Welcome!

I agree with your comment on the German forum that we should have investigated this and other habitats in more detail. But on the other hand, now we have a good reason to go back!!

Regarding your wish to visit some "Birkenwald" we saw large areas of these on our return journey, more specifically in western Finnmark!

Vårt mål: 650 arter! (26 to go!)

I vistited a birch forest at our stop on the bog in Pasvikdalen near Langfjordeid (N/O: 69.5867/ 29.9763) on 2011-07-26. It was the absolute mosquito horror. I left it afer a few minutes.

Indeed, that is the downside with that kind of habitat at that time of year!

Perhaps we were a little biased in our selection of habitats, but Glenn and me both love bogs and we suspected many new species would be found there and in adjacent woods.

Next time we go to Finnmark we´ll probably concentrate more on birch forests and areas a little more west in Finnmark.

You better mix the habitats. Rocky grounds, sandy areas, birch forests, pine forest, wet forests, dry forests, domestic areas (inside and outside) and bogs also! And also mix the methods.
