It´s a rather warm morning,1,4C (34,3F) and the snow is melting rather fast now. But to be honest, it´s most noticeable on the roads and the roofs on our houses. It´s still around 40 cm (16 inches) out on the fields. The roads however there´s no snow at all, just shiny ice 🙂 🙂 It´s more or less impossible to walk on those roads that has been plowed at the moment.
So when we were taking our morning walk I had to walk out in to the fields to be able to get to the forest. But on the roads that only has been plowed once or twice these last weeks it´s no problems at all. It´s a rather wonderful morning, despite the icy roads and I could hear the first spring song from the Great Tits just now.
I thought I would have fewer birds by the feeders now but it doesn´t look like that. The Bullfinches and some other “forest birds” won´t come for a while now, they do prefer to eat what they can find in the forest and now when the snow is melting it´s so much easier for them to find food in the forest. But this is just a temporary rise of temperatures so they´ll be back.
It´s time to take my tea and a couple of sandwiches up to the tv. They will show lots of cross country skiing today and later on also Cross country Biathlon, one of my favorite sports to look at. That´s a bit strange really since I really don´t like guns or rifles and they use rifles in that sport. You might wonder why I´m against guns and rifles? Today I think it is enough that I mention Arizona. Take care my friends!
