Well, it’s hard to stay at home when Lake Mogan is 20 minutes away. Today I couldn’t resist. So I went there once again. It was nice as always (in spring) with hundreds and hundreds of shorebirds.
Numbers of Barn Swallows had decreased a lot as had the general number of birds. But sspecially Whinchats have increased and are now common throughout.
White Storks and a flock of Glossy Ibises migrated north and a few Greater Flamingos and Gull-billed Terns were foraging.
, but the nicest surprise were about 20 Lesser Kestrels and 3 male Red-footed Falcons foraging out some fields south of Mogan. They gave really good views´even though the burning sun and the sharp light did make photographing difficult.
I managed to get stopped by the police once, but they were only curious about my photographing. Some local birders were also at Mogan today, so it was nice to say hi to them.
On the way home I got a flat tire, but it was easy the change and the flat one was repaired on the way home at a local garaj – so it wasn’t really bad after all.
