Fishing is under way at the fishponds

I had a short visit to Ferencmajor fishponds to check the drained pond for waders. Most probably due to fishermen disturbance very low number of waders was seen in the late afternoon. The pond looked to be perfect and the warming weather certainly produced enough food supply for migrant waders.
