Waterfowl count – January 2015
As every year, the weekend mid-January is reserved for the international waterfowl count (here is the link in German). The Saturday before the temperature was very mild. The weekend of the count it was raining or snowing all over Switzerland for Saturday. The weather forecast for Sunday was so much better that I decided to do the count on Sunday.
Over all I saw 56 bird species (not only waterfowl) and counted about 2220 birds that are included in the count.
While doing the count I don’t have too much time to take photographs. But now and then I take the big camera out – please click on the photos to enlarge.
