This is one of our ponds where there usually are rather many birds. It is devided in two by the road. 
The water is very low. More then 50 cm lower then normal. The swan whould not be able to stand at that location. And the green grass area should be under water enough to allow ducks and grebes to dive.

  5. What beautiful photographs. I am sorry the water level is low, I'm not sure where you're located, but we're having a drought here in California too...

  7. Hello Monica...I love the show Cosmos and anything like that.! Did you have a lack of rain too as we did here? It makes it hard on wildlife....Michelle
