Schellbruch Bird Flocks


I did put together a gallery of photos that I shot at the Schellbruch, I noticed many birds showed flocking or swarm behaviour and I want to show you the photos. It was pretty interesting to see all the birds, and to hear them, in flocks they are quite loud, it’s really a nature spectacle and I enjoyed this much. When I was there, I met a nature park ranger who was counting the birds, I am sad that I didn’t ask how he is doing it, but while we talked about other things, he was often looking through his … Continue reading Schellbruch Bird Flocks

One Cormorant


When I hike to the Schellbruch, the cormorants are the easiest to spot. To be honest, it’s easy to find other birds there too, but it’s much easier to take photos of the cormorants because they are big birds, and they sit or fly everywhere in this area. I shot the photo near the Trave River at the Schellbruch, I am not sure what this red thing is, it’s most likely a sign for the mariner or so, there are other signs and cormorants seem to enjoy resting on them. The birds do also make sounds, it’s interesting to listen … Continue reading One Cormorant

14 Miles Hike Again, Enjoying The Schellbruch


Today I decided on impulse to walk to the Schellbruch again, it’s quite a long hike with 14 miles, but it’s worthwhile as there are many interesting things on the route through Lübeck. I didn’t even upload all the images I shot the last time I was there, but it’s still a good idea to take new photos, because I like it if I have folders I can choose from. The photo above is a new one I shot today, the weather report said it would be a cloudy day, but not rainy. It was a completely different colour setting … Continue reading 14 Miles Hike Again, Enjoying The Schellbruch

White Swan With Fledglings


I saw this white swan with the fledglings at the Schellbruch. There were two of them and I think it was the parental couple of the fledglings. The swan that protected the fledglings hissed quite loud and expanded the wings to appear dangerous. You probably know it, it’s not harmless to enter their territory, that’s what people say and I think they are right. I was pretty careful and didn’t show any fast reactions and the swan eventually noticed that I am not a threat and calmed down. There was a footbridge near the swan that you need to use … Continue reading White Swan With Fledglings
