Sunday morning, 6:45
Hasi and the dogs got up, I stayed in bed.
Sunday, the perfect day to sleep late.
That was my plan...
But it wasn't supposed to happen like that.
Hasi came back into the bedroom, telling me about a strange noise that came out of the extactor in the kitchen. It sounded like a bird flapping his wings against the walls of the ventiduct.
So I got up and started to investigate.
Hasi and Barry were already over at the barn, feeding the horses.
So it was up to us, Cleo, cat Missy and me, to figure out a way to free the animal in emergency...
I figured out a way to get to the pipe fairly quickly, got a screwdriver to unfasten the clip that holds the tube that is attached to the metal ventiduct which is about 20x20 cm.
I pulled down the plastic tube and there he was, falling down from the prison he got himself into (probably looking for a nesting opportunity)...
The Starling took off immediately, hitting one of the kitchen windows, going for the light.
I managed to pick him (or her??) up. I checked for possible injuries and was glad to find the bird ok. His heart was pounding like hell and he looked very confused. I decided to take two quick pictures (for the blog of course ;-) ). Then it was time to take him outside again.
I told him to look somewhere else for a nest next time, gave him a light "lift" up in the air.
He spread his wings, startet to flap them like crazy!
It was great to see him fly off into the sky... :))
Phu! What a start into this new Sunday!
Time for some coffee!!!
Yesterday we drove down to Höllviken again, a place south of Malmö (south Sweden).
On the way we picked up our friend Carola from the Central Station in Lund.
We went to MacDonalds for a quick lunch
and got to our destination, the Riding School in Höllviken, around 1pm.
Anna, the owner of the stable, was already waiting for us
and the weather was georgeaus!
Carola had asked her if she could ride 2 or 3 of her horses,
while I would take some additional photographs, that we could use for Carola's Book.
3 hours and 3 beautiful horses later we had about 1667!!! photographs on the computer.
AND we DID get some very nice shots!
Thank you ANNA,
for such a warm welcome
and especially for the good coffee!!!
We were back home around 6:45pm,
he horses were already waiting for us.
Midas came trotting into the stable... :
"WHERE IS MY FOOD?"
Shaking his head...like:
"WHAT WERE YOU THINKING, YOU ARE LATE?!!"
Back to present time...
(the dogs, Hasi and I)
are sitting on the sofa in the living room.
(The dogs are stretching their legs and are asleep).
We are watching the GP of China (Formula 1).
It is raining there...! Makes the race much more exciting!
But now I am getting kinda hungry, time for BRUNCH!
Have a great Sunday everyone!!!
