Biological pools are true bird observatories. Pete Downs’ photo proves that a biological pool attracts the most varied species of birds. This little egret visits the photographer’s biological pool, attracted by the croaking frogs and took the time to inspect the banks.

Birds come to biological pools to quench their thirst and kingfishers look for prey in the water like tadpoles or dragonfly larvae.

Photographing birds at the water requires some patience, a sheltered spot near the biological pool and some luck.

Autumn is a very good time to observe these animals by the biological pool. At that time, the migratory species came together on their way from Northern Europe to Africa. Therefore, here is the invitation for everyone to photograph birds and other animals visiting biological pools. Send photos, please! In the next editions of our newsletters we will publish the photos.
