This is a jack snipe video.
Today, again to the “Baillon’s crake reserve”.
Shoveler, gadwall, tufted duck, and many teal.
Canada and grey lag geese.
Two male ruff. Their white heads show spring has started, though they are not yet in full breeding plumage.
The first pied wagtail of this spring.
Two little ringed plovers.
In the southern part of the reserve, two male reed buntings and a blue tit in reed stems, gathering stuff for their nests.
Just before we leave, in the northern part, a first: a jack snipe. It is resting with its bill behind its wings, standing close to black-tailed godwits, a redshank and a little ringed plover. Then, it wakes up and starts looking for food.
