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


but winter does have its own beauty.

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.
