Again, to the Baillon’s crake reserve today.
Near the entrance, gadwall ducks swimming.
A little grebe in the southern lake.
A group of five juvenile goldfinches on thistles near the entrance.
Northern lake: shoveler ducks, teal, lapwings.
A lesser black-backed gull, a few herring gulls, many black-headed gulls.
A speckled wood butterfly near the track near the railway canal.
The adult Egyptian goose with its five goslings a bit further to the north.
This is a great crested grebe video.
As I go back, in a canal near the entrance an adult great crested grebe with two chicks about half its size. The adult has a fish about half the youngsters’ size in its bill. It gives the fish to one of the chicks, which manages to swallow it with some effort.
