Egyptian geese and teal

Today, again to the reserve where I once saw Baillons’ crakes.

Near the entrance, a gadwall duck swimming.

In the southern lake: teal. On a muddy islet: northern lapwing, little ringed plover, and snipe.

Two shoveler ducks, three teal, and two coots on a still smaller muddy islet.
