Sunday 18 March, we went to the Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen nature reserve.
In a meadow before the reserve entrance, over twenty fallow deer.
This is a fallow deer video.
In the next meadow, ten more fallow deer. And two Egyptian geese.
A blackbird on a branch.
In trees along the path: nuthatch, blue tit, and short-toed treecreeper.
Snowdrops still flowering.
In a canal, tufted ducks and a female common pochard. Coots.
Grey lag geese flying.
A female common goldeneye cleaning its feathers. There are more females, and a male as well.
A chiffchaff singing.
A reed bunting on top of a reed stem.
A mute swan. A song thrush singing.
A great cormorant.
In the next canal, a male and a female goosander.
Common water moss grows in canals.
A dead common frog on the footpath.
An adult red fox about 100 meter away.
Grimmia pulvinata moss grows here.
Winter stalkballs, small fungi.
A young fox comes very close. Probably, some human passers-by feed it.
Two male fallow deer jump over a barbed wire fence.
Above the last dune before the beach, a skylark singing.
Some fifteen common scoters flying over the sea not far from the beach.
