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.
