Today, an adult white stork on the nest.
Probably protecting the young from the rainy weather.
On the meadow of the stork nest, an old farmer’s cart.
Today, a buzzard rests on it.
In the castle pond in the nature reserve, the first water lily flowers.
A carp swimming.
In the eaatern meadow, a shelduck on the opposite side of the river, much closer than usually.
Later, a group of four shelduck.
Oystercatchers, northern lapwings.
As I go home, a reed warbler singing.
These females look more like “orangecaps” (see picture).
Usually they are less conspicuous than males which sing from tops of bushes.
