Early Summer Walk – part I

The weather is just going pretty crazy here. We are having early summer temperatures and not enough rain for April. Well, it is nice to take a morning walk along the lake and see who’s around.

A Gray Heron (Ardea cinerea – Graureiher) and a Little Egret (Egretta garzetta – Silberreiher) waiting for the fisher man to come back from his tour.



14 puff balls over all – little Greylag Geese (Anser anser – Graugans) with their adult supervisors:



And a Starling (Sturnus vulgaris – Star) finds something to soften his/her nest:


And around 80 Great Cormorants (Phalacrocorax carbo – Kormoran) looking funny with almost only their heads sticking out of the water:

  1. ‘Early Summer Walk’ … how appropriate with the temps we and the wildlife are experiencing. If it doesn’t rain soon we’ll all suffer.

    Lovely to see all the little ones starting their journey in life.

  2. I would like some of your weather. The weather has been keeping me from getting out and photographing wildlife. I am sitting inside watching it rain, wishing I could get outside.

  3. Really beautiful photos! The heron is gorgeous! Still waiting for the warm weather to arrive here, so it’s great to see pictures of the little puff balls. Makes me hopeful!

  4. Another set of gorgeous photos! Really wonderful captures of the various birds. The starling with its feather was a great observation. The fourth photo of the little ones and their parents peering into the photo is superb – as they all are! The heron and egret look splendid. Thanks so much for sharing your sunny weather walk.

  5. That’s an amazing gathering of Beauty!
    I love that Heron shot and the tiny Ducklings đŸ™‚

  6. You already have little feather friends, the repro has not started here!! Even, most of the birds have not returned!
