Juta, 23 October 2011

Sunday morning Lisbeth and I drove east up the Sno Valley to Juta village, inhabited mainly by one family: Arabuli.

Still a lot of cattle grazing in the fields.

The landscape up to the Chaukhi Mountain was covered with snow and looked very different from my last visit 2 weeks earlier

Donkeys are not so common in the Caucasus compared to horses

The open pit latrine of one households of the Arabuli family.

The Ring Ouzel (Turdus torquatus) is a European member of the thrush family Turdidae. It is the mountain equivalent of the closely related Common Blackbird, and breeds in gullies, rocky areas or scree slopes. It breeds in the higher regions of western and central Europe and also in the Caucasus. Most populations are migratory, wintering in the Mediterranean region.
