Life has returned to your little dam, Nan! and what a life \O So many different birds and even deer and a cute mouse ^Q^ ^Q^

I still have not seen a swallow and we have 20° in the afternoon -O- Normally I can hear them. Must have a closer look.

I have dared to put the first summer flowers on the balcony, even if it is a bit early, but the weather is so beautiful O**

Always love your tits, nana! \O

Where on earth does "Ferruginous Duck" come from? :shock: :shock: :shock:

And nice signs of Spring! Fascinating!

Is that a muskrat, or a vole? :-?

To spot a Ferruginous Duck in a large flock of Tufted Ducks and Common Pochards requires a practised eye and a lot of patience, therefore the species is often overlooked. The Ferruginous Duck can sometimes be seen alone or together with a few other diving ducks. It is the rarest European diving duck, small numbers, however, regularly spend the winter in Switzerland.



^Q^

Well-spotted then, nana!
