Ducks and Gull

Tufted Duck - Aythya fuligula - Reiherente

Common Pochard - Aythya ferina - Tafelente

I love those Black-headed Gulls who stand on that blue handrail – it makes such a nice contrast with their red legs. The juveniles still lack that shiny color.

Black-headed Gull - Larus ridibundus - Lachmöwe
