Zorro just moved in

The spring is here, and many birds are looking for a new home. I try to help them a little by putting up some accomodation. I had larger birds in mind for this house, but the nuthatch could hardly wait till I had taken my ladder away before he moved in. Here he’s admiring the view from his new house. I call him Zorro because of his black mask, of course.

A fine morning

Finally… a warm day! Woke up to sunshine and the sound of happy birds singing on Sunday morning. Had to go out right away and take a long walk in the morning sun. Breakfast had to wait. Too bad the picture can’t give you the sound of the birds and the smell of the forest.

The old master

This wonderful oak tree – called “Den gamle mester” (The old master) has been protected since 1914. I wonder how many times it has felt winter turn into spring. And what stories it could tell, had it been able to speak.
I thought it looked particularly great when we passed it on our way home after a splendid National day celebration.
