A Christmas morning at the "Rieselfelder"

The "Rieselfelder" is a very large bird sanctuary near Münster, Germany. The fields are named after the process of wastewater oozing away in the soil. After the invention of sewage plants they were not used for this purpose any more and dedicated as a bird sanctuary. My parents live nearby the place and I spent the early Christmas morning of December 26 in 2015 and 2013 there to get some bird pictures. I came up with pics from ducks, goose, swans and storks. Due to the warm winter in Northern Germany I even managed to see nine storks on a field that were not off for migration to Africa.
