Today, to De Bol and Wagejot nature reserves in Texel.
Most water is frozen. Mallard, tufted duck , and coot in a ditch with open water.
In the Wadden Sea: wigeon, mallard.
On the frozen ice of De Bol: seven adult whooper swans on the ice.
On the Wadden Sea: ten shoveler ducks, six females and four males. Two wigeons join them.

I look again at the open water ditch: a little grebe.
Five pintail ducks flying.
A male goldeneye swimming and diving.
Six brent geese flying to the south.
Scores of oystercatchers on the dike.
Very little open water in Wagejot. A lone redshank.
Later, pheasants flying across the snowy countryside.
