lunch time in the glass house restaurant with a great view over Bodensee / Lake Constance, the lake wedged between Austria, Switzerland and Germany. A couple thousand coots, Tufted Duck and Pochard paddle about outside, entertained by the odd Red-crested Pochard, Teal, Gadwell and others. Whooper Swans are always great too and world on the trails has it there is a Smew and a group of Eiders out there somewhere.
but the highlight of the day, and one of my personal birding highlights this year, was a very confiding Snow Bunting. after filling two memory cards with 12GB of photos and video, sometimes less than five metres away, we continued on to pick up some fudge ducks and other stuff.
so now i am going back to birding and giving up fighting with this stupid tablet. uploading photos seems to be impossible, I’ll do it at home.
btw, the photo of the Snow Bunting at the top was at about 5m (15ft) taken with a little compact camera through my Swarovski EL12x50s.
