This is a video about the Polders bij Poelgeest nature reserve in the Netherlands.
After last week, I went there again today.
In a canal near the entrance, a great crested grebe and a great crested cormorant swim and dive.
Gadwall, coot, moorhen.
A common tern flying.
Teal in the southern lake.
A group of goldfinches, mostly juveniles, feeding on thistles.
A bit further, a juvenile tufted duck.
Near the northern canal, two Egyptian parents with two goslings about half their size.
A bit later, three spoonbills near the northern lake island.
On a muddy southern lake islet, a snipe resting.
Snipe photos: here.
