Also this January I was present at the International Waterfowl Count, as always. I started to count the birds already on Friday because I was busy on Saturday morning and that afternoon I had to show how we do it to two other girls.
always happy when I drive to the Gorenjska region in the NW of the country, and
so it was also this time. I chose to go there on Sunday, when a nice weather
was promised, and indeed we had clear sky and sun shining bright on us. But …
it was very cold. -7 °C might not be cold for someone from Finland where it’s
around -30 at the moment but it is for us after such a mild autumn and
beginning of the winter. No snow – happy me! It is much easier to walk those 4
km one way through the woods along the river if there’s no snow. I counted no
less than 15 dippers this year, almost half of them were singing. Great! I have
never heard anything like this before. And again, happy me!
