Little grebe and oystercatcher chicks


On 23 May, again the “Baillon’s crake reserve”.

Near the entrance: sedge warbler and edible frog sound.

Grey lag geese. Coots.

Barn swallows flying.

Reed bunting singing.

Male and female tufted duck.

In and around the southern lake: shoveler, redshank, lapwing.

Gadwall. Canada geese.

Reed warbler singing.

Swifts. Shelducks.

Moorhen and mallard, both with chicks.

Northern lake: Egyptian geese. Lesser black-backed gull.

A spoonbill feeding.

A young oystercatcher, already over half adult size.

Common sandpiper. Common tern.

Two lapwings driving away a jackdaw.

Two barnacle geese. Male and female common pochard.

Two little ringed plovers on a small sandy island.

In the northern canal, two adult Egyptian geese swimming with a gosling.

Near the bridge, on the southern lake: an adult little grebe swimming with a small chick.

In the northern lake, a great crested grebe with a chick.

Four black-tailed godwits standing in shallow water.

On the northern meadow, wood pigeons. A white stork circles high above them.
