Long-tailed tit and horsetails


After computer monitor trouble, this blog is back.

This morning, a long-tailed tit in the usual small tree near the bridge.

Ring-necked parakeet sound.

This video is about horsetails.

Between the stones of the bridge grow small plants with a big history: horsetails. Ancestors of them already grew in the age of the dinosaurs, and long before the dinosaurs in the Carboniferous age, when some of them grew as tall as trees, unlike the small plants of today. Horsetails lived even before the Carboniferous, in the Devonian.
