An afternoon with waterfowl

After an almost endless time without birding it was a real pleasure to spend two hours at the Hochreinsee today. This birding abstinence had the mere effect that a great range of migrants have yet been missing on my year list. Time to change that!

 

Fortunately also the weather was just perfect on afternoon with a lot sunshine and almost no wind. So I could really enjoy to observe and photograph the birdlife there. In fact, I scored three year ticks, the first was a male Cuckoo, followed by a Little Ringed Plover on the gravel banks and finally by a singing Wryneck. So far a great success!

 

However, apart from these ornithological highlights I mainly focused on taking pictures and due to the good light conditions I managed some decent shots. Hopefully it's not the last time that I could get out this month!
