Our walk today took us from Rajka, a small village on the Hungarian side of the border, to Rusovce, back to Slovakia. We mainly followed a canal parallel to the Danube, and spotted the most wonderful bits and bobs of wildlife. But first, we admired the church in Rajka, its statue of Christ with a Toothache and a Whovian Weeping Angel. Along our way, many flowers were in bloom. I liked the poppies best.
Among the bigger birds we saw were Mute Swans keen on preening (not yoga) and several Grey Herons. On a slightly smaller scale, we saw different kinds of ducks.The
Goldeneyes are aptly named (for update see comment section), the Red-crested Pochards almost.
