Knut-Sverre is a reporter for the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation. He’s been a bird and wildlife enthusiast for as long as he can remember, saving money for his first binoculars at age seven, getting his first SLR camera at age 12 and having his photos published in national magazines at age 14. He grew up in southern Norway but moved north 27 years ago to Vadsø in the Varanger region, well known in the birding community for its abundance of seabirds, waders and Arctic ducks, as well as quite a lot of rare vagrants.
