Got back last night. The trip was with my parents (I am almost 13). We had two birding trips planned: one to lake Konigssee, Germany and one to a gorge in Austria . Sadly when we got there the weather changed drastically. It was supposed to be 65-75f  but instead it was 25-40f and snowing or raining nearly the all the time.:classic_sad:. We did not have anything but light jackets so the gorge got canceled completely. We went to the lake and took a boat ride but did not get out and had planned to walk down some trails they had but it was sleeting heavily. But I still got a few birds.

Mallards, Gray herons, House sparrows, European goldfinch and White storks. and several other birds that I have not identified.

I will post photos later.

Too bad to hear about the weather but still glad you're able to capture a few. Looking forward to the pics.
