Along the bicycle tack north of the railway station, many common butterbur flowers.
Near the northern entrance of the reserve: northern lapwings, grey lag geese, Canada geese.

The inevitable mallards.
A starling on a northern lake islet.
On another island a resting shoveler duck.
A mute swan swims near the little bridge near the railroad.
Tufted ducks. Redshank sound.
At the coniferous bush, a greenfinch sings. And a dunnock.
On the northern meadow: Egyptian and grey lag geese.
Rooks. Jackdaws. A wood pigeon, and many coots. Two Canada geese.
A hare‘s ears just popping out of the grass. A bit further, a group of hares is more visible.
Oystercatchers. Something special: a ruff.
Near the bridge linking the southern and northern parts of the reserve, a juvenile black swan swims. Juvenile, as it still has quite some greyish-white feathers.
A great crested grebe, also swimming in the northern lake.
Two magpies sitting on the bridge.
On a grassy northern lake island, three redshanks walking fast. Behind them, two dunlins.
In the southern part, great tit sound.
A coot swimming with a bit of reed in its bill.
