Nature Notes: Volksdorfer Teichwiesen

We used the nice weather on Saturday for a walk at the Volksdorfer Teichwiesen, a nature reserve not far from where I live. It may look a bit bleak with spring still to come

We also saw some mallards that were already paired up and preparing to chase an intruder

and a species I hadn't seen before, Common Mergansers. The ones with the brown heads are the females.
