A flock of red-breasted geese

Our tuor was wonderful today. Today we went to explore the biggest reservoir in our local area. This huge lake is a meeting point for thousands of geese and ducks. Among the ducks we found mallards, pochards, ferruginous ducks, wigeons, gadwalls and showelers. The great flocks of geese mainly consist of greylag, bean and white-fronted geese, but today among the geese we observed 15 Red-breasted geese. In the sky a white-tailed eagle was flying. At the reservoir we found cranes, rough-legged buzzard, hen harriers and kingfishers as well. Afternoon we observed 3 species of owls: long-eared, little and tawny owl.
