October Daily 19 – Always Surprised

October Daily 19 - Always Surprised

I do know that herons ocassionally perch in trees, yet they always manage to surprise me when they actually do it before my eyes.

October Daily 16 - Incoming

My (north-western) German birding blogreaders probably expected something like this when they read I was in the Dümmer area. The lake itself is lovely, but this time of year one goes to see the cranes.
I was not well prepared, the distances we had to drive were longer than I expected. I also didn’t expect to find lots of people (them I did expect) at the look-out more than 2 hours before sunset – we decided to watch the cranes at their roosts another year. And early in the morning instead of in the evening.

Haven’t seen them around in ages, but for the last month there’ve been two of them regularly at the feeder. Makes me happy.

To Bath or Not To Bath

In the end it only drank a bit. Kind of disappointing. 😉

Gotcha!

Gotcha!

It was almost a year ago that I managed to take my first (and until yesterday only) photo of our resident tawny owl. I’ve been hearing her calls all the time, but usually she’s behind the barn. And when she pops up on the roof of the barn it’s too dark to do more than admire her.
