Early Summer Walk – part II
And here are more birds I was able to see on my morning walk. I was very thrilled to see that Common Sandpiper (Actitis hypoleucos – Flussuferläufer) because even though it was already 8.30 a.m. and other people around, I managed to take some decent photos. They are not very common in Switzerland and it’s only the second time I’ve seen one.
On the other hand the White Wagtail (Motacilla alba – Bachstelze) is pretty common but I hardly ever take decent photos – save today:
The Mallard Drake (Anas platyrhynchos – Stockente) is always a beauty:
And this Common Coot (Fulica atra – Blässhuhn) must have gotten into a fight – see the blood on its beak?
