Today [28 February 2011], again to the “Baillon’s crakes reserve”.
Though the water is not frozen, it is cold.
Grey lag geese, mallard and tufted ducks.
At the southern lake: Canada geese, shovelers and teal.
About a hundred black-tailed godwits calling, flying above the northern lake.
Northern lapwings. Black-headed, common, lesser black-backed and herring gulls.
An oystercatcher flying over the canal north of the reserve.
Two tufted ducks mating in a ditch.
A group of chaffinches at the northern meadow.
Shelducks, gadwall ducks, common pochard. Many teal.
A couple of Egyptian geese. A great crested grebe.
A white stork close to the railway.
Three redshanks standing in a rain puddle in the northern meadow. Like the black-tailed godwits (see also here and here and here), probably just back from their migration.
