Near the entrance, a strange goose. Looking like a bar-headed goose, but with only one bar, not two, on its head. A hybrid between a bar-headed goose and another goose species?
Many grey lag geese with goslings.
A male common pochard swimming.
A male tufted duck.
Two adult coots with three chicks.
Above the southern lake, two common terns flying. My first common terns of this spring; probably returned recently from Africa; maybe even South Africa.
Near the northern end of the southern lake, two moorhens mating, with the female’s head under water for some seconds.
Then, a male reed bunting singing in a small tree. While the female perched on a reed stem not far away. Sometimes, they changed position.
A bit further, coots quarreled about nesting sites.
On the northern lake, northern shovelers and teal swimming.
A barn swallow flying.
A few black-tailed godwits are left, now that their spring migration is almost over.
A redshank flies, and lands.
A gadwall duck couple.
Two little ringed plovers in mating season mood on a muddy islet.
Stay tuned, as there will be more about this nature reserve on 21 April!
