swims in the river Weser, and sometimes in the "Haven" (harbour), still covered with ice. With the other swan they form a couple and there is a big little one too. If this is the couple that had last summer 5 children, in autumn there were four left, and now only one? Did the other ones decide they can manage alone?
The current of the Weser is very fast, in the "Haven" the water comes from the Diemel and is guided by a sluice towards the Weser.
The morning sun is glorious and I hasten to go outside. I see the white snowdrops, (not fully open yet), and it awful cold, especially when I take pictures my hands are frozen.
