The missile is of course exactly programmed and doggy will land on the balcony. :mrgreen:

I have seen a bit of blue sky today, and when I thought already I won't see the sun as the clouds were thick in the western part of the sky, the sun fell out from the clouds for 5 minutes! :thumbs: It could be so nice ... Image but no, it has to be Image

I don’t want to make you envious, but we have sunshine the last days… :mrgreen:
Not the whole day, but at least a few hours.

And suddenly I saw a lot of Buzzards and Red Kites. Farmer were working on the field in the morning and they're so many of them in the sky, on the trees and sitting in the field. I couldn't count them. It was wonderful :loveshower: .

Thank you for your beautiful pictures, Manu!

I'm also happy, when weather will be a bit warmer :laugh: .

We have a lot of Buzzards and Kites in our area, but sooooooo many I never seen. It was so beautiful so see this :loveshower: .

Great pictures! Red Kites are not that common here too, on the contrary, windcraft will go on halt, if they are around. IUCN says "NT" near threatened, but Switzerland is stable or even tending upwards! :thumbs:
But also the other pictures I like, especially the fox and the cat! :laugh:

The cat was the one and only animal who doesn't ran (or like the birds "fly") away . :rotf: .

I'm really surprised to see they're so many red kites here. For me it is fantastic :2thumbsup: .

You have so many Red Kites there - I can´t remember having seen only one here in my area!
