This day I witnessed a fight over territory between a Coot and a Horned Grebe pair.  It was quite intense but no one was injured. And the winner is ...... the Horned Grebe.

Today I only saw one Grebe so the other is probably laying on egg.

Passing by this land yesterday I realized we had a brand new lake. It had been raining a lot and the land was filled with water. Not sure the farmer liked it but the birds did. The first of the vaders I´ve seen was there and some greylag goose and gulls. And to me, it was a nice surprise :)
And in the nearby pond I found a Moorhen. I hope it will stay.

This time of year house cleaning is important. I did not hear any sound but there might be chicks in there.
