Such lovely pictures.

Manu I especially love the Cool (calm and collected) Roes lounging in the field.

At least two of them are roe-bucks.

Beautiful photos! You also have no snow! Here all snow is gone, it was 14° C today and now it is stormy and it pours!

Thank you. I was really surprised to see the roes. It was 16:30h, but still a bit dark. We had today also 13°C and a lot of rain. Snow is melted since a while.

Thank you Felis. Today I was more than 2 hours on my "special place" and they were so many bussards, kites and ravens/crows. It was really a pleasure to observe them. But I'm afraid it was today the one and only nice day with sunny weather.

Manu, thank you for the beautiful pictures. The red kite is really is a beautiful bird.
Ok, today was the first day this year I had my cam with me. Yesterday I saw the first this year crane in my area. So I used my cam with the last years settings and most of the pictures are .... :slap:
Saw "our" eagle pair today and one another very very far away

It was a cold morning with thin ice on most of the water. But there were some spring feelings, I think

Good question, Manu, I was asking myself the same thing yesterday evening! Bea, how is your feeder cam working? :wave:

Good morning :hi:

The cam works very well :shake: But with the birds it is the same like some of you have already written - they don´t eat as much seeds as the weeks before! Nuts is what they always keep fetching first :laugh: other seeds are not away so fast any longer - although we are having snow and cold temperatures :puzzled:

Business right now in the morning - fresh nuts inside :whistling:

That sounds exciting, even if they are not eating so many seeds.

(Because I had a rat jumping to the feeder, I have not used the feeder at all this year. I miss it a lot.)
