Merlin brightens the day

A really dull and wet day.  We decided to go out anyhow.  Leaving our village of Cesseras we were pleased to see a young male Merlin flash across the road.  This species is quite scarce here so a bonus.

We checked Lac de Jouarre but only one Tufted Duck and c300 Mallard.  Two Great Crested Grebes also there and 12 Cormorant and a couple of Yellow-legged Gulls.

Despite checking two more sites nothing except three Cirl Buntings.
