Starlings



In the same meadow, where the stork sat, there were a group of starlings.
They were also feasting on things crawling in the grass.
and so now and then they flew into a nearby tree.
I love watching these birds in their acrobatic flights.
same like sparrows do and carrier pigeons.

Stork



Stork in the meadow.
Standing on one leg in the first photo.
He stood there like that for a long time.
Later a heron joined him, probably there were some snacks running around.

While bathing he became quite ruffled and untidy.

Little Wren





It was already getting darker a bit, when I noticed little Wren on the terrace.
He was picking something and than smashing it.
I needed to know more.
Through my camera lens I saw he had a big something!
A big caterpillar.
For such a small bird quite a big snack!
He smashed the thing like kingfishers do with their fishes.
I never had seen this.
When it was enough smashed he had a big full tummy!

Wagtail





Wagtail having a bath.
I rarely see them here in my garden.
But this one came and even started preening his long tail.

Sparrows







The set of sparrows are coming almost everyday now.
Reason is, I guess that my neighbours have bought some chickens,
and the sparrows love to pick their share in the chicken-house.
And that makes that they come to my garden for a bath and if there is food to eat here as well.
I love the sparrows.
They are so funny.

Blackbird bathing





Blackbirds really don't care how you look like while bathing.
They look so funny with all the feathers ruffled and out of place.

Grass




Grasses in my garden and Burnet (Sanguisorba officinalis)Pimpernel.
This is awesome between grasses.
I tried to grow more but that did not succeed yet.
