thank you all 0/0

ExFmem, if I follow a little bit the habits, I can find interesting activities \O

Flutts, thank you

RP, no, this is a design in the stone path to go to the hide... just before the dark forest O-/

Liz, most of them are "de passage" (migration) and sometime one or two new species. Some species like Grey Herons and Cormorants are nesting around now.

Mel, Lifer often only pass... from North to South (at the moment)
right a chance the Beaver ate "only" a tree... a very big one O-/ we still can go to the "octogone" (open to the public) but no hide and if somebody come when the "moustaches" are here... nothing for me...only the reeds 0' =O:

All-Nature, each outing is different O/\ but sometime almost nothing... only Coots =O: or after I left O/

Pumbaa, now we are waiting for waders, and maybe some more lifers \O

on the 24th... I missed more than hundred of White Storks at the other place @#$
they stay the night and went to Geneva in the next morning... I heard that only the 25th... too late to go to the other place before the take off of all these birds 0=

We have grey herons and cormorants here too and lately a lot of Eurasian magpies. They did not use to be here -O-
