They are gathering and preparing for the trip south again. 
I think they will leave early as the waterlevel is still too low.

It is very dry here now. Every pond is drying out. Where the sandpipes walk ducks usually are diving. Soon there will be no water left.

The water is very low right now so vaders start to come here as other places are all dried out. I had to make my way through all of the reed below the field,  to get to the water edge.

The Grey heron was repeatedly attacked by a Black-headed Gull. Not sure why as I could not see a reason. There was also another heron that was not attacked. Finally this one had enough and flew up to the top of a tree. Last image is another Grey heron. 
The geese are graylag geese already comming together to prepare migration back south.
