Kalandsvannet had today three Cormorants. Some say that these inland sightings concern the continental race sinensis. That could be true, but these individuals were too far away to be sure about the racial identification. The feathering around the gape and especially the gular angle is the only steady feature that separates the two (for reading I refer to Martin Garner's Frontiers in Birding (2008)).
There was a shy Mistle Thrush foraging in the fields around the birdwatching tower.
