Geese & Ducks

These days there are a important pass of migrate birds towards the south, probably increased for low temperatures in northern Europe.
There are several formations of Geese flocks flying to the south.
The Ebro water reservoir is a rest area and sometimes wintering area of Ducks and Geese flocks.
So these days you can see flocks of ducks scattered throughout the reservoir, with special preference for more sheltered areas.
With the snow, the Geese have a little difficult to find food.
Most birds observed were geese and ducks, but we have also observed several flocks of Thrushes (Fieldfire, Redwing) and Finches (Chaffinch, Linnet, Hawfinch…) , typical of this season.
