This video shows a bluethroat singing.
Canada geese swimming.
On a bank, grey lag geese with goslings. Some Canada geese have goslings as well, but smaller ones than their grey lag relatives. Canada geese here nest later than grey lag geese. Because they are used to the colder climate of their country of origin Canada, where spring starts later?

I hear from another birdwatcher that today he saw a bluethroat quite far from where I saw that species weeks ago. A bit later, a couple with binoculars sit on a bench, at a different spot again. Why do they sit here? ‘We have heard and seen a bluethroat!’ So, maybe three or even more bluethroat nests in this reserve this spring.
As I walk back along the southern lake, big splashes: it is carp spawning time.
