Yesterday, again to the “Baillon’s crakes’ reserve”.
Near the southern entrance, a reed warbler sings.
A female tufted duck swims.
A reed bunting song.
In the southern lake: shoveler ducks. Egyptian geese. A Canada goose nesting. An oystercatcher. A northern lapwing drives away a magpie.
A common tern. Two black-tailed godwits wading.
A spoonbill lands in the northern lake.
Redshank and greenfinch sounds.
Four swifts fly past.
The water lilies have started flowering.
A domestic duck escapee resting on the dike near the north-south bridge.
A mute swan swimming in the north-south canal, with six cygnets.
Redshanks on northern lake mudflats.
Two barnacle geese. A black swan swimming.
Near the railway, two adult shelducks. Like the last time when I was here, with seven ducklings. They swim past a grey heron on the bank. So, not one little one caught since last time (by a cat, a pike, or a grey heron).
A sedge warbler sings behind the shelduck family, in the reedbeds.
Great crested grebes and coots swim here with youngsters as well.
A hare in the same spot as last time, probably the same individual.
A group of five ring-necked parakeets flies overhead, calling.
Two goldfinches singing in a treetop.
