Just after the two little ringed plovers of my earlier blog post, on 21 April 2014 in the “Baillon’s crake reserve”, this grey heron.
A greenfinch on a small tree.
Then, three still very small northern lapwing chicks on a muddy shore.
We hear the lesser whitethroat, but don’t see it, unlike two days ago here.
In the northern meadow, a rare bird: a ruddy shelduck. It grazes. eventually, an Egyptian goose drives it away.
A hobby flies past. Also, an unusual species here.
As we go back along the other side of the southern lake, we see barnacle geese. And a muscovy duck.
In a lakelet, a shelduck couple. While a redshank wades between them.
Later, the shelducks fly away (with the female on the foreground of this photo).
Not far away, a hare.
