The chirping of birds, murmuring brooks, the first butterflies, busy ants and warming rays of the sun accompanied me on today's round. Many trees have been felled, and the paths are still muddy in places. Pines were actually planted again locally, and I thought that the forest owners had become smarter.

Even if you walk a lot on little-traveled back streets on this lap, I still found it to be a relaxing after-work walk. My initial attempts to somehow reach the marked paths near the banks of the forest ponds failed because of locked gates or a continuous chain link fence. This is more likely to be more successful during the camping and swimming season.

According to my weather app, it shouldn't rain for 2 hours this afternoon. So off to the Dippelsdorf pond, which I haven't been to in a long time, for an after-work walk. I parked at Gabelweg, crossed under the S 81 and ran on a freshly paved bike path over to the pond. Soon, unpleasant smells wafted towards me - a farmer brought the manure onto the meadows. After a while, however, I was able to breathe fresh air again and enjoy the evening songs of the birds by the pond. Past the Red House, I followed the path by the pond in the direction of the narrow-gauge railway, and then the next unpleasant surprise: the tracks are blocked. A welded-in fence field closes the transition. But you can get over there, if you want, you just have to walk a few meters towards the Friedewald stop and then back onto the tracks.

Today really cozy, I thought. And hopefully not so many people who are out and about on this wonderful early spring day. The latter worked out quite well. The first not quite so, because the meadow path along the small water ditch was a bit difficult to walk: if the wild boars had plowed the path at the beginning, in the second part there was an excavator track. So we moved to the edge of the field with the result that what felt like 5kg mud stuck to our shoes. But otherwise it was just fantastic! The ponds were still frozen and the Spree had plenty of water. The Nutrias struggled with the current when they swam to the other bank of the Spree because of us. A gray heron and cranes circled and screamed above our heads. We will certainly not be here for the last time and will definitely take binoculars with us on our next visit.
