There's an Osprey nest on the causeway, on a platform built for the purpose. Their arrival back will be a sure sign of spring, but they do need open water for fishing.
In March the lake will look quite different! This is March 2016, lots of swans, geese and ducks stopping for a rest on their way north as the ice starts to melt.
And this is Lake Eugenia, it's rambling shape defined by the river and stream valleys that were flooded. The village is on the left and you can see the causeway running left to right in the lower centre.
To answer some of the comments on yesterday's post, my new camera is a Canon EOS M50, only about half the size and weight of the big old Nikon I was used to. It doesn't do well on close-ups or telephotos, but I take a lot of general landscape shots, and it seems to work well for those. It has good enough resolution that I can crop much further than anything on my iphone which loses resolution almost immediately with cropping. I am doing all kinds of exercises to build up my upper body strength so I hope to be be back to using my larger Nikons in the summer. But this one seems good for the usual drives we take when of course I'm just the passenger and I'm shooting one-handed out the window.
