Opening the curtains this morning revealed a sunny day, with a tiny amount of fresh snow on the fields – an ideal day to start with a drive around the farm fields. Soon enough I spotted some Hares (Haas), but they were not in an amorous mood, so I made some okay shots, but – alas – no chance of framing them while ‘boxing’. When the sun disappeared I decided to head for home, but suddenly there was rather heavy snowfall. Opting what to do, I decided to quickly check upon some Grebes (Fuut) that I had seen beside the road. Lying on the snowy ground, I – for the first time – was able to frame them with snow on their backs instead of little chicks 😉 . After work (the sun was shining again), I made a short tour again, and had short opportunities with (among other species) a Smew (Nonnetje), Common Buzzard (Buizerd) and after teaming up with Fred, I saw my first Stonechat (Roodborsttapuit) of the season. All in all an interesting day 🙂 .
