Thank you so much, Lussi. I could not get the link to open properly but took a clue from the end of it & posted the video ID code into YouTube, & found this: is it what you were trying to post? It is a beautiful song that made me cry & perfectly expresses the sense of loss felt after that day.

Yes Kitty, that is the song. I am sorry that my link was wrong and I have made a correction, thank you for fixing it :wave:
You are right, it is a very beautiful song that I think fits perfect, emotionally, to the situation... I have heard that Bruce Springsteen made it especially after 9/11...

Don't know how long this video may stay on the pages of ARTE, but it's worth while seeing. Text is in German, but beautiful pictures of Blackstork's nest, Peregrine falcon's nest, White breasted Dipper and young, and some other birds and animals, it's from Saxonia from the hills at the border between Germany and Czechien near the Elbe:

That is so wonderful!
Beautiful film, excellent photography.
Thank you, Leonia, for bringing it here.
I love the presenter's voice. His diction is so clear.

Thank you, Macdoum! - Only why is glorious autumn weather promised just this weekend ... :cry: Although it might be possible to combine forest forays and sleep catch-up in daytime.
Hmmm - Le Crepuscule des Dieux sounds much more manageable and mundane than Götterdämmerung ... :mrgreen:

Glorious & extraordinary early autumn days here in Western Europe :loveshower:
- very warm temperatures and the lust to save as much sun for the dark side of the year as possible is enormous... :D
Here the residents of G. B. are mentioned...

Looduskalender and this forum had a period of "blackout" today. The server developed a fault.
Webmaster made a phone call - someone did something clever at the provider's place, and we came back online again.

Welcome back to all of us!

Yes, I could not reach it the whole morning, yesterday, but then read in Facebook that Looduskalender has a problem. Thankfully it could be repaired and nothing got lost, I experienced it once in a forum that data from a particular stretch of time were lost forever because the data backup also broke. It would have been a pity to lose all those nice pictures and videos! :shock:
But for that, my Laptop had a blackout in the afternoon, but what was funny, I was loading Pontu pictures to Photobucket, that link only went off after all of them were up, but while it was loading I could not reach any other page anymore. Really strange.

So, we are all back and I wish everyone a good start into the new week! :wave: It has become cold in Germany, but it was nice and sunny over the weekend! :thumbs:

By the way, I have reached mid-July uploading the LSE Pontu pictures! Interesting time, as Tormi was growing so fast!

Felis, such an example of IT failure makes us more aware of how important your work is.
Pontu backup is vital!

Yes it is! If you ever lost work or other data due to a crash, you know! :banghead:
