Here are some pictures taken in the Stadtpark recently, showing a curious feature of Germany - shepherds sometimes turn up in the middle of town with their flock. I wonder what roads they come along? There were three dogs and an electric fence, which was moved around so they cropped different areas every day.
On this one you can even see a stork on the nest on top of the chimney at left:
and two storks here:
See, for example, www.wanderschäfer.de.
The only remaining question is why German lamb often tastes so mild.
