Fantastic once again, nan! I'm sure there are some birds in there that I haven't seen before on this thread.
Or at least such a long time ago that I can't remember lol You might have been dead tired after 6 hours,
but this must have been a great outing with so many different things to see and to photograph! ^Q^

You might have told us before: When you go to your pond, do you sit in a hide and wait for all the birdies
and other critters to come by or are you walking around to find them?
God put me on earth to accomplish a certain amount of things. Right now I'm so far behind that I'll never die.

What a variety, Nan ^Q^ ^Q^ I did not even know that we have all these birds in our country. I am very surprised to see a red-backed shrike :shock:

Lots of cuckoo pics O:V

most of time I walk... slowly and time to time stand (where the Cuckoos were and in front of little nest)
I have to search... with the ears too... but I can't remember all the songs =O:
and now there is already a lot of leaves 0*\
not a lot of seats... even nothing :twisted: to put my buttocks =O:
I stay in the little hide at the arrival, depend of what there is and when I return to the car (this time were Heron, Coot, Warbler and the flying Ducks)
for the Shrike, it was one of the last birds... I took place against a pole lol

there is two places to seat on a big "sleeping" tree... but with the sun... beware of the snakes O-/
but no snake till now :-(
