Today, again to the “Baillon’s crake reserve“.
There is a black swan nest with goslings somewhere here, but I did not see them today.
Mallards. A moorhen.
On the bank: two Canada geese. Grazing coots.
In the next canal again: tufted ducks.
In the southern lake, shoveler ducks.
Northern lapwings, Egyptian geese and jackdaws flying.
A female common pochard swims. A male common pochard flies.
Oystercatchers on a peninsula.
In the canal near the railway, a great crested grebe.
What a thrill, the contrast between the loud voices of grey lag and Canada geese, and the subtle teal sounds.
I hear a redshank as well.
A great cormorant on the top of a leafless tree.
