Our walk along the river Morava this morning was pretty amazing, despite a chilly wind blowing from the north. Several times, we saw a white-tailed eagle flying by:
And now guess whom that made extremely nervous? The newly arrived white storks, happily settled back on their nest near the bridge into Austria.
Most of the time, however, they were quite calm, and we even saw them mating! Pictures of the act are on my husband’s blog, a post called Sex and Violence, together with some history of the female – we figured out her ring number.
Further down the river, there was the usual muchness of mallards, and a first great egret.
