Finally the birds are returning. In this first wave there are Whooper swans and different kind of geese. I have id:ed four kinds of them. They are all so welcome. A few ducks has arrived but not on this location. Here are only Mallards. The greylag goose in the last shot, through the tube, was standing in that position for 2 minutes, at least. Almost as it was frozen.
