Not a lot of action at Polder Glies but at least I was able to shoot my first cuckoo ever. The little Barn Swallow wasn’t scared and sat at the look out so I had to move backwards to get into shooting distance.

Early morning quick stop in Cappel-Neufeld for some Oystercatchers. Unfortunately not the promised weather. Nevertheless two shots worth to keep as they show a very calm sea.
