Today started out much like yesterday did but the clouds were thinner and now most of it is gone, yesterday they never really left. We reached 14C (57,2F). I must admit that I was surprised to see that this morning when I checked the thermometer. We’ve already reached 10C (50F) so I guess we’ll reach at least the same as yesterday.
We walked in the fields again this morning and took the same way as yesterday, I looked after the little bird I found wounded yesterday but couldn’t find any traces of it. If I had seen some feathers my guess is that it had died and another predator had taken it but there was absolutely nothing so I hope he made it. We had cranes close to us and lots of other birds too of course and I can happily say that Albin didn’t care about them at all but I had to leash him after a while anyway.
He is so fascinated by cars that he has huge problems not trying to chase them. If I however leash him that instinct dies and he starts to relax immediately. I’m hoping that it is the sound from the winter tires, almost all of us have studded tires during winter, The problem will soon be over anyway since it won’t be long until the cattle walks the fields again. Hopefully he will calm down till next winter when we can walk there again.
The beekeepers bees are trying to find food and there’s very little around yet. They aren’t aggressive at all but it is annoying to have them flying everywhere in my kitchen as soon as I open the door 🙂 To be honest, I’m mostly worried that either Albin or Sune will try to eat them 🙂 I had much more flowers in bloom in my garden than I thought though but that isn’t enough at all. So yesterday (and today this morning) I made some syrup and poured it into a soup plate and placed the plate on a pedestal a few meters from my kitchen door.
Very few came at the beginning and some drowned in it too, so I put a tiny amount of rowan jelly in it so it turned slightly red. The entire top of the pedestal was covered by bees after a few minutes 🙂 and it is more or less the same right now. It didn’t take long until all the syrup was gone so I’ll make some more tonight and put it outside in the morning before I go to work. The dogs however aren’t that happy about this because they aren’t allowed to go outside again until the bees have finished the syrup 🙂 Yesterday all bees left the garden just minutes after all syrup was gone.
It is time to have a pot of tea and after that we’ll take another walk, can’t have too many walks when we’re having spring weather like this.
Have a great day!
