Finally they start arriving.
It was less cold during the night than it has been lately, unfortunately it’s less warm during the day that it has been lately too. But the sun is shining and the places where the biting cold wind doesn’t reach itr’s actually quite nice.
I heard the first cranes flying above my cottage before we went out on our walk this morning, I couldn’t see any but heard them clearly. I was thinking it was just typical, missing the chance to take some photographs of cranes for the first time this year when they were so close. We had come to the other side of the village when flocks cranes filled the air 🙂
Several flocks of cranes were flying towards the lake when suddenly they all broke up in smaller groups and many of them were landing in the fields around me. Two even landed in a pasture just beside where I was walking. They didn’t seem happy to see me though so they flew away towards the bog after just a few minutes. They are finally here and spring is most likely around the corner.
It doesn’t feel like that today though due to the cold wind. I will of course take some walks with my dogs but besides that I will stay indoors most of the time. I’ll have plenty of time to make wood chips from the lilacs later on anyway.
I’ve started a fire in the stove and I’ll make something to eat later on, perhaps pancakes 🙂 No matter how beautiful the day looks it’s still not spring quite yet .
Have a great day!
