Junam Reservoir, March 19

Bird News from Dominic Le Croissette

Largely bereft of interesting birds at Junam as the spring progresses and the water level rises, in a similar pattern to last year when the reservoir suddenly became very quiet birdwise in early March. However, the visit was made worthwhile by the continued presence of a fine adult Lesser White-fronted Goose, which showed very well at close range and permitted some digiscoped record shots to be taken. Otherwise the only bird of interest was a Eurasian Hoopoe, which felt very appropriate for the warm and sunny conditions today.
