Flachsee in Switzerland

Finally I was doing another morning bird walk and have the time to post about it.

It was rather short but great. Migration has started already and so I got to see 29 species in a two hour walk.

The best of course was my life bird #492: a Spotted Crake (Porzana porzana – Tüfelsumpfhuhn):Spotted Crake

The Common Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis – Eisvogel) just sat outside the hide. And since all the bigger slots were occupied by photographers with mostly huge lenses I took the little one on the side and – was lucky 🙂Eisvogel

Willow Warbler (Phylloscopus trochilus – Fitis):

The Common House-Martins (Delichon urbica – Mehlschwalbe) were enjoying the fresh air:

And a Common Greenshank (Tringa nebularia – Grünschenkel) was looking for food in the shallow water:
