We present exemplary observations of solar radio bursts collected in 2017 – 2021 with the use of LOFAR station PL612 located in Baldy (Poland), operating in local mode. In that period, the Sun was observed for 1190.3 hours over 235 days. We gathered high time (8 ms) and frequency (0.4 MHz) resolution spectra in the band 10 – 250 MHz. Despite the fact that this period can be characterized with relatively low solar activity, we managed to observe quite a large number of various bursts. Detailed analysis of these events will undoubtedly contribute to expanding our knowledge about physical properties of solar activity. Additionally, a single LOFAR station can be used to continuously monitor radio bursts in order to analyze the mechanisms affecting the so-called space weather.
