Today I saw juvenile cranes with rings in Russian color code :D
Image

here are juvenile without rings.

They are really, very far away. When I take pictures I only see that there are cranes. Unfortunately, I can never see if they wear rings. Next time I take my binoculars. Then I purposefully photograph the cranes that wear rings.

I also saw geese, whopper swans, mute swans, buzzard, kite (I think there are black kites. red kites should already be in Spain :puzzled: .)gulls, crows, raven and two stags :laugh:

Unfortunately only 2 of 5 cygnets are left. I don't understand how it could have happened. On July 25th there were 3, on July 26th. there were only 2.

25 July here they are wet.. is not normal :puzzled:
Image

Image

26. July next day only two
Image

I'm afraid at least 2 of them were killed by tourists. The tourists have discovered a new Corona hobby. Kill animals! An incredible number of hunting licenses were also applied for this year. It will get worse because the hunt is a billion euro business. Nothing will improve for the animals.

Pictures from Juni. Swallows in front of my bedroom window. They collected Nesting material. A sparrow came to take a bath. It's just a puddle of water.

I have a huge group of sparrows here. One day the sky was black from them. At first I thought it was starlings or .. I don't know. Then I realized they were sparrows. I've never seen so many at once.
But there is also a large group of starlings and jackdaws. the starlings will move on. The swallows and Common Swift are already gone. The Common Redstart and the wagtail are still here. They find food in the flower meadows in front of my windows. There are trees and bushes nearby as resting places for the night. It's just great :D
