Harsh winter in the Hungarian Great Plan

Today we had a guided birdwatching tour into the winter Puszta. In the morning there was -15 Celsius, but the temperature was frosty in the afternoon as well. Buntings, thrushes, finches were the most common birds, but we saw a few White-tailed Eagles, Black Woodpeckers and Great White Egrets too. The trees had a white rime wintercoat, the lakes a 20 cm thick ice, so after thise frosty experience we loved to drink a hot mulled wine.
