Gadoura Reservoir

Last stop is a very low  man made lake in the middle of Rhodes. Not really expecting much after the earlier disappointments with migrating birds and indeed apart from huge numbers of coots and the odd great crested grebe and little grebe there was just a circling common buzzard nearby. However there was a lot of noise coming from the reeds  and nearby coppice which I can only describe as very large belching sounds. I seemed to have come across a hareem of fallow deer during the rutting season! Very impressive too and a first for me.
