Today, again to where the Baillon’s crakes nested last year.
Reed buntings singing as well.
Tufted ducks. Grey lag geese with goslings.
Gadwall ducks. A male common pochard. Mallards with ducklings. Canada geese.
A northern lapwing drives away a lesser black-backed gull.
A coot with chicks drives away a big fish moving around wildly in the water because of the mating season. I can’t be sure which fish species. Carp? Or pike? If it is a pike, then it is very courageous and dangerous what the coot does.
A male shoveler. A female gadwall with ducklings.
In the northern lake, a shelduck. Willow warbler sound.
The Canada goose still sitting on its nest.
Oystercatchers; redshanks. Just a few black-tailed godwits left.
A great crested grebe still on its nest.
Walking back, another great crested grebe in a broad ditch, managing to swallow a rather big fish after some trouble.
A black-tailed godwit standing where the Baillon’s crakes nested last year.
