Just a normal Saturday morning.
The night was really cold, -9,9C (14,2F) and still now at noon the temperature is just barley over 0C (32F). But the sun is shining and the day is wonderful despite the low temperatures. The first thing we heard this morning when we started our walk was the Black grouse´s out on the bog. It feels like it is a bit late season for them now, but the weather hasn´t been good enough for them until now of course.
We walked on the fields so that Nova could run free and get rid of all that energy that she is so full of 🙂 and I could hear the cranes by the lake, something I couldn´t when we took our next walk an hour ago. The traffic on the big road was to loud then and I guess most of the drivers were heading to the lake to see all the birds. But I did hear our nesting couple when we walked out to the bog instead.
It feels like Nova understands why she has to have a leash when walking in the forest or by the bog, because she doesn´t try to get free from the leash when the other two gets out of theirs. She actually walks very well and only pulls once or twice to get a bit further in to the forest just in case a vole or mouse has passed there 🙂
As most of You know they made the nature reserve bigger last year, which is a good thing. But forced the previous forest owner to cut down all trees before the nature reserve took over just because they want “natural” trees to grow there. By that they mean trees that is natural to the surroundings, like birch, oak, redberried elderberry bushes and trees like that and with trees like that we´ll also get loads more of ticks that loves that kind of forest.
It´s time to have a pot of tea and then I think I´ll take a little nap. I tried to take one before our latest walk but my dogs just wanted to go out instead 🙂 🙂 Have a great day now!
