Today I spent three hours birdwatching at Haßfurt in the "Mainaue Augsfeld". First stop was the "Großer Wörth", which is quite often and so this morning too the most interesting location there. From the observation tower I scanned the reed belts of the proximate "Sichelsee", but only a single Kingfisher could be seen. The bigger lake looked a bit more promising, since huge sandbanks were visible at the opposite shore because of the long-lasting heatwave of the last weeks. And indeed, the...

For a few days I had been in the "Bohemian Switzerland" and so I wasn´t able to keep this website up to date for this period.

Well, the website has been online for almost three weeks, but it has been more or less a move from the old provider to the new one. This blog post is the first "new" content. I had spent a few days outside of Franconia and so I can only report from a stop in the nature reserve "Lange Rhön" at my way back. The interesting mountain range hosts an unique birdlife in Central Europe, which is worth to be recommended. I hope that the detailed site description will soon be available via "Birdwatching...
