A quiet Monday in mid March


Monday was a bit quiet...............


At Onuma the ice is beginning to melt slightly..................I disturbed a Grey Heron and great Egret at one partially frozen pond.





There were a couple of White-tailed Eagles around, several species of duck including Smew, falcated Duck, Pintail and the female Baikal Teal...........


Nearer town there was a flock of Black-necked grebes in one of the ports............







Not much else near town: a few Whooper Swan, the usual common ducks and gulls.................
