the bowls are still frozen apart from the one where the camera is, no activity there which just shows how lucky I was to get the boar the other night
it seems its only me using the bridge at the moment
nothing doing on the ski slopes
this pile is getting bigger so we'll be up here with the tractor next week
don't know who these tracks are but it reminds me that when I was a kid in Denmark I used to walk in the snow after school with my head down following the tracks, once I noticed deer tracks that elongated , indicating that it speeded up at each corner in the pathways, as if it had seen me and then run , so at the next corner I looked up instead of gazing at the ground and sure enough there was the deer.So I'm doing what Ive allways done observing what goes on around the bowls are a means of concentrating the the eye on small aspects of change and the camera helps to corroborate what may have been observed.
well that boar is still around despite the dogs and there he is enjoying the bowl,must be big to get his nose in I thought they drank from the puddle they created from digging around. He noticed the red light.
this bowl is the only one with fresh water running through unless it freezes hard
heres the camera perched on a sculpture above the bowl
some mornings things are a bit blurred but with interesting results
just checking but in the end I moved it on to a stronger metal stucture there were some wasps hibernating in it and I thought I felt something crawling up my sleve, sure enough it stung me several times 10 minutes later
this morning some hunting dogs had run past probably on the sent of the wild boar, I met the hunter (he wasn't armed) who was trying to track them with a gps
this is the nest of the pine processionary caterpillar, causing havoc among the pine trees in certain areas which leaves more space for the native trees less likley to spread forest fires, the hunting dogs can have problems with them tho.
a little bit of ice on the bowls but its warmer this morning
