Natürliche Nähe Kalender 2021

Friday, 30 October 2020

Die wichtigen naturnahen und wunderbaren Augebiete um Linz brauchen ihren Platz und unseren Wertschätzung. Speziell in Stadtnähe sind solche Naturschätze von enormer Bedeutung aber auch besonders verletzlich. Wer sie also schützen und erhalten möchte der/die begegnet ihnen und ihren Bewohnern mit Achtung und behutsam. Wer darüber hinaus noch eine Kleinigkeit beitragen möchte, der/die kann durch den Kauf meines Kalenders "Natürliche Nähe 2021" die Arbeit der Stadtgruppe Linz des Naturschutzbund Oberösterreich mit je € 3,00 unterstützen. Dieser Kalender widmet sich vollständig meinem Projekt Natürliche Nähe und zeigt ausschließlich Fotografien aus den Auen rund um Linz.

Let's continue with some more impressions of the Thaya Valley National Park. The park celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. As already mentioned, it's Austria's smallest national park, covering an area of about 13 km2. For comparison, the High Tauern National Park has a size of 1,856 km2. And behind the Gesäuse National Park, it's the second youngest national park in this country. The reserve is also widely known for a few evidences of the "extinct" European Wildcat which seems to make a shy revival in Austria, which is great news. But of course, it is actually impossible to spot one of these wild creatures in the park. But to know that they might roam around somewhere in these woods is already a pleasure.

Patterns along the border.

Graceful bird at dusk, hidden behind some Spindle Trees.

Just a snapshot of an amazing cloud display I experienced that evening.

It was an exciting encounter with a gang of Wild Boars crossing the Thaya River from Czech Republic to Austria in the early morning.

When golden patterns start to appear in the skies and the woodlands.

Floral pleasures along a forest path.

A rainy morning in early autumn.

Most areas of the national park are shapes by rather steep slopes.

A wonderful location where the Kaja Creek enters the shallow Thaya River.

Although the Thaya Valley National Park has its very delightful wild side, it's probably Austria's most tranquil and calmest national park. Anyhow it's the smallest of this country's six national parks. And because of these facts, I enjoy it so very much. It's such a cozy and peaceful place, but it offers quite a lot of possibilities for exciting encounters and sightings at the same time. The valley is home for rare and fascinating species like the Eurasian Otter, Black Stork, Bald Eagle, European Crayfish, European Green Lizard and so on. But not only the fauna there is pretty lovely, also the mostly unaffected woodlands with an extremely diverse tree population invite for a walk at any time of the year. And last but not least the Thaya River itself is a very calm and gentle stream which marks the border between Austria and the Czech Republic.

New life in spring.

Backlit mist always gets my attention.

The sculptor and his sculpture.

The small stream of the Kaja Creek is home to some of the very last European Crayfish populations in Austria. Not to be confused with the invasive Signal Crayfish.

I met this little artist one morning on a dew covered meadow.

Also autumn offers some gorgeous floral displays.

The "Burning Bush" contains enough essential oils, to set itself on fire during very hot days.

Two countries united in fall foliage. You can see the forests of the Czech national park area behind a curtain of Austrian leaves.

A lush, wet and serene morning in May.
