Wheatears and ducklings


Today, again the “Baillon’s crake reserve”.

Near the southern entrance, a sedge warbler singing.

In the canals: grey lag geese, tufted ducks.

Mallard ducklings.

A gadwall duck. One of several mute swan nests.

A northern lapwing, flying and calling.

In the southern lake, a male teal.

A little ringed plover on a mud bank. Little ringed plover photos: here.

Several coots have chicks. Canada geese have goslings.

A redshank.

Common terns flying. A male shoveler swimming.

In the northern lake: Egyptian geese. A common sandpiper on a muddy island. The big group of black-tailed godwits of weeks ago has continued their spring migration to elsewhere. Still, I hear godwit calls and see one on the muddy island.

This is a wheatear video.

Two northern wheatears on the southern dike of the northern part of the reserve.

A couple of Egyptian geese with goslings, standing next to a black swan.

In the northern meadow, oystercatchers and a hare. A barnacle goose. A greenfinch singing.
