Changes

Changes

I wrote a short post about flood protection measures and the riverbed restoration around here last year and wondered what would change in terms of birding. One of the changes you can see above – long-tailed tits. They gave me a hard time flitting around and most of the pictures I took are even crappier than that one. But I was really happy to be able to watch them.

But even more fun than watching the tits was listening to the wrens. There were 2 of them sitting about 10 m apart and their songs were like a very polite conversation, letting the other one finish before one responds. I really hope they’ll stay.

A pair of Canada geese was grazing on one of the fields, maybe this year they stick around. And the Great Egret isn’t alone anymore. Yesterday I counted 7 one the field in front of the farm.

I think that bodes well for the future.
