House sparrows and tree sparrows are making a hell of a racket these days. You can see them everywhere around the house. The feeding ground is rarely empty. In the Moment they also seem to be very fond of the flower buds of the rock pear…

Yesterday I drove to Schillig to take pictures of short-eared owls. No way like the owls in Cuxhaven 2016.
