Crows mob buzzards here too but I've seen a heron mobbing crows that got too near its nest. Very noisy.
Glad you all had a good time LP.
Unfortunately, all too many little wayside memorials for pedestrians and cyclists. At the risk of making sweeping generalisations, Belgians don't like being "governed" - all those centuries of being invaded and occupied and ruled by the Burgundians, French, Spanish, Dutch and Germans in turn - and tend to obey rules that suit them so paying taxes, speeding, seat belts, drink driving and mobile phone behaviour improves slowly and the Walloons adapt slower than the the Flemish. That said, the Flemish are now quite strict on road behaviour and the Walloons have managed to reduce road accident deaths by 25% in recent years so just a few die hards left to convert to socially responsible behaviour.
Hosta - recorded it too but not seen it yet.
DD - Enjoy your day. Making yourself at home will be so good for both of you.
We are downsizing to a smaller house - 2 fewer beds and bath, no attic - and a bigger garden but half of that is pasture and the rest is blank canvas. Possum is going to an apartment in Namur to finish her studies so 2 moves and lots of sorting. Like you, the new house has shutters so no need for curtains but I will be taking nearly all ours as they are good for the acoustics and colour factor. Have had to adapt some old ones for Possum which took time and some new tape and thread but otherwise free.
Now to do a sort of plants for which to keep and take and which can be given away. As ever I have spares and backups from the divisions I took earlier....... Seeds to colect too and maybe one or two special clems to dig up and take. The new people are not gardeners and will have poultry. Heaven forfend!
