now there's a strange voice/noise?
edit: this could have been a fox, but not quite..? the foxes i've heard have sounded like 'rrhoe-rrhoe - rrrhoeww!' with descending pitch or intensity, like a dog with a sore throat and a hoarse voice. this was more like rrrhoeww..-...rrrhoeww..-... rrrhoeww with longer intervals.

garlic?? why? is there garlic there on the ground? :puzzled: - i haven't looked very closely today... do you mean the whitish thing that i s there in ther front, which looks like giant popcorn to me? i think it was Tsiga who told us a few days ago that it was "knotted bun". i don't know what kind of bun that is, but i suppose it must be some sort of white bread, rolls or something... :dunno:
i should think that garlic would go well with wild boar... :whistling:

Where have our avatars gone? Can anyone see avatars, normally?

Oh, they are back - it must have been a fault in my connection!
Sorry for the alarm.

there's a lot of dogs' barking tonight. one is rather close but then i can hear at least two other dogs at different distances very far away. i guess they are exchanging the news of today. maybe i can hear them better than usually 'cause i put headphones on...

just minutes before more pigs appeared on the arena one of the boars tried to get a grip on one loaf of bread which was in the foreground.
Image
it was tricky (frozen and too round?)
Image
she/he tried to hold it with her/his hoof to get a better grip of it, just like a cat holding the catch with its paw :rotf: .
Image
in the end she/he was able to break one piece of if but then abandonned it in the end. then there was this large heard of boars....

Yes, it does. I had some in Denmark a while ago. It wasn't an Estonian boar, of course :whistling:

there seem to be 9 boar left... and they are quite peaceful again as there is plenty of space for them.... except that exactly right now there seems to be some little quarrel... :mrgreen:

i'm wearing earphones for the first time and i think i'm hearing strange noises... a while ago it was like very distant fireworks exploding. now it sounds like an airplane going above... and some more distant explosions... just like New Year..? :puzzled: or is it just the wind in the microphone? on the other hand i hear the munching of the pigs just like earlier, just as if they were munching in my lap. :mrgreen:

edit: i guess it must be the wind hitting the mike. i had the volume turned very low. now i turned it back and the "explosions" sound more like normal noise... just the wind.

there are only four boar left there, but there isn't much food left either... just a few potapples around the arena and the pomelo is still in the goal on the right. i think that is too hard-frozen that it'll be spring before it gets eaten.
sniiff - sniiff - munch - tschuff... - munch - munch... 8-)
- still the dog is barking there, too.

if that was not an airplane's sound then...?
there are more boars again but not nearly as many as during the rush-hour when the were 20-something boars at the same time. now its about a dozen, mainly peacefully munching.
- i think i'll be :offtobed: now... bye-bye. :wave:
