Today, again to the park in the south east of the city.
We were looking for birds.
The first sounds we heard were an European blackcap singing.
And a green woodpecker.
Later, also great spotted woodpecker.
A male pheasant.
In a meadow: Canada geese, Egyptian geese, and Northern lapwing.
In the trees, grey heron nests with young.
And robin, blue tit and long-tailed tit.
In a canal, coots with chicks.
Yellow flag flowering.
And wild garlic.
A magpie, sitting on a sheep. And an unrelated, but also black and white, oystercatcher.
A garden warbler singing.
On the meadow: lesser black-backed gull, herring gull, black-headed gull.
A great cormorant flying.
Black-tailed godwits chasing a carrion crow away.
If you look closer at the ducks, besides mallards, you also see quite some gadwalls.
And a male tufted duck.
A singing treecreeper.
A singing wren.
A ring-necked parakeet in a tree.
On a fence, a buzzard sits, eating a young black-tailed godwit.
Later, two buzzards circling high in the sky.
And a sparrowhawk.
On a shrub, a whitethroat singing.
A coot chasing a gadwall away.
Near a tree, a speckled wood butterfly.
A hedge sparrow singing.
In a marshy part, a reed warbler singing.
And various damselfly species in heart shaped copulation. Including blue-tailed damselfly.
Next week, again activities in this park.
