Luckily, the snow went almost as fast as it had come, and spring could continue as usual. We went on one of our little excursions to Marchegg to have a look around the WWF reservation.
The reservation is also home to a small herd of horses, the breed is called Konik. Of course, there were the smaller birds around. I’m not sure if the pipit is a meadow or a tree pipit. Kestrel, yellowhammer, chaffinch and black redstart showed up too.
We then walked to the lake Kleiner Breitensee which is an essential and protected area for migrating birds and a place to rest over the winter. There were pochards, mallards, geese (probably greylag geese), egrets great and little, lapwings and coots.
