Landed on a site near Gizycko right on a lake at the top end of the Masuren. Run by a Glaswegian and his Polish spouse. Talking to him he was saying that in the winter is the best time and I can believe that. N54°02’16” E 21°41’53”
Saw a couple of pairs of Goldeneye and a large number of Great Crested Grebe. The Storks make a tremendous noise as the twilight sets in. Also could hear the hollow booming sound of Bitterns but had no sighting as it was too dark.
Close to the camp was a really large Beaver Dam, and one kind fellow swam by to show himself.
Along the way driving across we spotted two foxes, on separate occasions, chasing mice in open fields.
