I was able to move further down the dike where I took the first and second posts of this series and found a wide opening where I watched hundreds of birds move in a steady stream into the next open area.
Most of them weren’t interest in the open canal directly in front of me, but a few stopped.
A few egrets waded across. I wondered if the birds were getting tired as they had been at this frenzied activity for well over an hour that I knew of.
Once the birds got further to my right my view was obstructed by the reeds.
