It was a gloomy and very blustery afternoon when we happened upon one of these beautiful looking birds.

One of the young White Tailed Eagles we were privileged to see in the Danube Delta. The light was awful and it has just started to rain as the Eagle gave us a close up view of its impressive wingspan perched on a tree stump at the edge of the water.

Despite always approaching very slowly we never had much luck in photographing Egrets on this trip as they would often fly away. On this particular occasion I was determined to get something and managed to fire off a few quick shots, as you can see from the background the heavens were about to open.

Squacco Heron (Ardeola ralloides), Danube Delta, Romania, 2021. Body: Sony ILCE-7RM4, lens: Canon 600mm f/4 IS USM.

Squacco Heron is uncommon to locally fairly common summer migrant to southern Europe from winter grounds in Africa and Iberia. Favors fresh marshes, lakes, and ponds with reeds and other surrounding vegetation. Tends to hunt rather sluggishly, hunched quietly at edge of water. Habitats frequented include swampy plains, river valleys, deltas, lakes, ponds, canals and ditches. Its diet consists predominantly of larval insects although fish and amphibians. The overall population trend is unclear, some populations are thought to be stable and others may be increasing or decreasing. The European population trend is estimated to be stable. The greatest threat to this species is the loss and deterioration of natural and man-made freshwater habitats.

Late afternoon on the delta. After a nice day, big squalls announced the storm. While the sun was still there, illuminating the banks and reeds in fluorescent green, big dark blue clouds were heading towards us and in the distance the rain was already falling.

This dark sky made a beautiful background for this Roller perched on a dead tree a few meters away. Just after we went back to Mila 23 under a torrential rain.

Juste avant l'orage - Rollier d'Europe

Fin d'après-midi sur le delta. Après une belle journée, de grosses bourrasques ont annoncé l'orage. Tandis que le soleil était toujours là, illuminant les berges et les roselières en vert fluo, de gros nuages bleu marine se dirigeaient vers nous et au loin la pluie tombait déjà.

Ce ciel sombre a fait un magnifique arrière-plan pour ce Rollier perché sur un arbre mort quelques mètres plus loin. Juste après, nous avons regagné Mila 23 sous des trombes d'eau.

Our guide kept talking about hoping to see a Racoon Dog and we wondered what it looked like, I guess the name totally befits the animals appearance.
