spying on wildlife

I was out counting ducks ,swans ,geese and waders this week for the wetland bird survey. I use a telescope which makes the whole thing a lot more enjoyable. With a telescope I can see birds instead of black dots on the water. Since a lot of what I’m looking at gets shot at they don’t let you get too near. The animals are definately thinking of spring and reproduction. The great crested grebes were displaying despite the fact that they don’t have their summer plumage and stuck together the way male and female canines do, were a pair of foxes who looked very feed up with each other. I was spying on all this from the other side of the lake.
