Warm and Stormy January Day – part I
They announced warm 14°C (57°F) weather for today and I decided to take my camera and go for a long walk along a lake (Greifensee) with lots of nature. Here are my impressions (click on the photos to enlarge).
I started around 8.30am just when the sun came out behind the clouds.
Walking along the little river I suddenly saw a beaver (Biber – Castor fiber) – I probably have never seen one that close.
Some of the birds I saw:
Red Kite (Rotmilan – Milvus Milvus) – there were many of them dancing in the wind.
Northern Shoveler (Löffelente – Anas clypeata)
Grey Heron (Graureiher – Ardea cinerea)
European Blue Tit (Blaumeise – Cyanistes caeruleus)
