Siskin suicide attempt

When I got up yesterday I was just opening the curtains when I heard a gentle tap on our french window.  I’ve heard that sound before but never when the curtains were closed.  Sometimes we get birds who think that they can fly through our house only to crash into the closed window [maybe Ria should clean them less?] this little Siskin knocked himself out, but was still breathing so I picked him up and kept him warm in my hand for about 10 minutes as he started to come around.  Once he had opened his eyes I put him in the garden where he was well camouflaged.  15 minutes later he was flying again 🙂

Monschau for lunch

IMG_5142a

What better way to spend Sunday than on your bike?  We took our tandem and joined up with Mika & Andy on their Mountain bikes to ride to Monschau for lunch.  Cool weather at the start soon turned into pure sunshine and 16°C.  The colours in the Fenn were fantastic, lunch was great and, of course it was a great ride (100,8km and 645m of ascent)

The Cranes are back!

Back home form Antwerp to several groups of Cranes on their way back up north.  A lot of them stop to feed for a few hours on the High Fenn before continuing their (noisy) journey.
