Today, Monday 25 August, was my first day in Weerribben nature reserve.
Before arriving there, near Steenwijkerwold, many barn swallows flying over the canal.
Many northern lapwings in a meadow.
Near the Hoogeweg, one of over thirty dragonfly and damselfly species of this national park: blue-tailed damselfly.
A small grass snake: dead on the bicycle path.
Another beautiful reddish insect: large red damselfly.
A great cormorant passes by.
