This morning, again to the reserve where the Baillon’s crake nested last year.
Gadwall ducks. At least two mallards with ducklings.
Tufted ducks and common pochards.
Grey lag and Canada geese.
Three great cormorants on the top of the windmill.
One great cormorant swimming.
Northern lapwings and oystercatchers.
Little grebe sound. A great crested grebe swimming.
Where the Baillon’s crakes nested last year: many gadwall ducks; shovelers and teal as well. A swimming Egyptian goose.
A ringed plover on a mudflat.
At the northern pond, only about ten black-tailed godwits left: it seems that their spring migration is almost finished.
Later, in the village, one white stork still sits on its nest.
