Spring must be there with all those birdies mating. :-0

As I said on the ID thread already - great finding of the black-crowned night-heron, nan. O/\ O/\ O/\

Your Crow is a Raven Corvus corax - (Grande Corbeau not Corneille Noire). Great birds. \O

Swans don't look like birds to me...probably some sort of childhood fairy tale cockup to add to my dementia.... 0:

Thanks, Deli! :-0

yes, there a bit mist on the water when the sun arrives... is for that I love to go early... just before the sun O/\

no problem Dewi =O: \O

I must say, there was 2 other people at the mating Swan (out of water) and they come directly to them O-/
I stopped them and said, we have to let a bit space, these birds could be dangerous... so much power in the wings O-/
almost as bigger than a Bustard... and can flight too, with a noise... like a plane O-/

never saw this car before.... a 3 wheels... nice one \O
