Augustusburg Castle, Bruhl, Germany
As I approached the castle my story takes a different turn, it is because the doors are shut. ‘Castle remains closed on Monday’ I read on a board there. Amidst all planning I forgot to check the holidays of this site. ‘This is what happens when you plan the tour yourself’ I said to myself!
We roamed around for sometime, the church nearby too was closed, thankfully the gardens were open. I will be posting on that soon. We spotted some avians in the stream flowing near by. One particular moorhen was behaving a little aggressive. We didn’t realize we were approaching its nest. As we neared we saw a couple of eggs in it, white ones, slightly bigger than hens’ I thought. This was exciting; we soon forgot about the closed castle and got involved in taking pictures of the moorhen and its eggs.
