12 October 2018, the day after 11 October, was our last full day on Rügen island in Germany.
In the morning we went to a wetland in the east of the island. As the 2018 summer had been dry in Germany, like in other countries, the land was not as wet as usual; probably meaning less water birds than usually.
Mallard ducks. Four starlings.
Scores of grey lag geese.
Sea thrift flowers.
I arrived at Klein Zicker village.
Shaggy ink cap mushrooms.
In the afternoon, we went to the harbour of Sassnitz.
A decommissioned British submarine, HMS Otus, is now a museum in the harbour.
Many jellyfish swimming.
Mute swans swimming as well.
Like this black-headed gull in winter plumage.
