People in the old days believed that today on Candlemas day (February 2nd) the ravens put the first ”log” in their new nest, or checked their last year’s nest in the Candlemas month – if and how much mending it would need.

This terrain suits  the activities of lynxes

A few degrees of frost and a slight snow cover made the animals use the first few days to familiarize themselves with the new conditions in the forest but the track book is already readable.
