Two swans in the Reitdiephaven are swimming away. The last one here, the biggest one, made himself big and swam towards me while flapping his wings on the water. I was rightly impressed. This is a big animal.

The Onlanden nature reserve in Peizermade on a busy Sunday afternoon. We saw several buzzards, a white egret and mostly we heard a lot of birds. It definitely felt like spring was coming.

This heron waited until we were very close before it decided to fly half-a-meter away. Usually they are much more shy.

The church in Dorkwerd looks shiny in the Sunday afternoon sun. There were rather young people bringing flowers to a grave in the churchyard.

Everybody watched as two guys drove their car on the ice at the Leekstermeer at Cnossen's. They drove to the other end and back. The ice was strong enough.
