This week saw the end of sub-zero temperatures. The snow has melted, and the weather is now grey and windy. The last snowflakes fell last Saturday, and I enjoyed them until the end, on a lovely walk with two friends around Buresø.
Fog covered Copenhagen when I woke up on Sunday. I went to Kongelunden for a birdwatching tour with DOF; we hoped to see the fog lift before the end of our trip, but this did not happen before Monday evening. It did not prevent us from spotting a Tawny owl (Strix aluco) resting in a tree.
On occasions, we would stumble upon the corpse of a shrew, probably killed by the cold.The forest was crowded by thrushes, tits and woodpeckers, but we missed the crossbills. We even found a Common kingfisher (Alcedo atthis) waiting over the only spot of unfrozen water, near Vestamager.
Two days later, there was no snow left in capital of Denmark.
