The lake lies at 669m, so it would leave the highest point in our Peak District, Kinderscout, under 30 metres of water. It is reputed to be the cleanest in the Austrian lake district. Trout are abundant and sometimes huge. We don't see a great variety of water birds. There's a flock of some 30 Coot, a few Great Crested Grebes, a family of Mute Swans, the inevitable Mallards, parties of Tufted Ducks and a single Pochard.
The wagtails that we see at a lakeside meadow - an adult and three young - appear to be greyer versions of our Pied, with a large black bib and a cap set well back on the head.
Autumn Crocus are in flower in damp grassy places. The large flowers, almost the size of an egg cup, are pale lilac with three stigmas, six stamens, six petals and no visible leaves.
As we walk back to our guesthouse after our evening meal in the village, on a track across an open meadow we see a small group of deer run to the cover of some small trees. They make scarcely a sound and we wouldn't have seen them at all except for the floodlights of the village football pitch.
