Junam Reservoir, May 1

    Bird News from Dominic Le Croissette

A warm, sunny afternoon, and as expected a quiet visit, however there were still a few birds which were perhaps worthy of note. Foremost among these was the adult Hooded Crane on rice fields NE of the main reservoir; probably a sick or injured bird, it cut a forlorn and lonely figure as it walked slowly about under the warm sun. Also of note, 5 Little Terns over the main reservoir, and a pair of Eurasian Hoopoes carrying food (suggesting probable breeding) near the stone bridge.
