In the last years the population of common buzzards in our area has grown immensely. I was lucky enough to get a picture of one that was sitting on a wayside cross next to the street. February has nearly come to an end. We had a really dark and misty period again, but suddenly the sun came out which felt amazing after all those dull days. I started to clean the greenhouse and was searching for the first spring flowers in the forest, but no luck yet! But the sounds of happy birds are clearly showing the way to spring.
