In two weeks much can happen. Most of the snow has melted and the birds have arrived. Couples of geese stroll among the seagulls and terns. You need not watch out for them, yet, but the noice is remarkable. At sea the spring is always later than on the mainland. There are huge ice flakes on the eastern shore, but the rocks are bare. The landscape has returned to normal. The juniper, too, has emerged from the snow. Only the lowest branches are still stuck in the icy snow. One branch was broken due to the force of the ice. Lots of small green needles were shed in the snow around the juniper. Perhaps some birds have been eating the berries, why else such a spray of needles?
