Goosanders, mandarin duck and robin

Today, to the Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen nature reserve.

As we stopped to pick someone up, three ring-necked parakeets calling, flying overhead.

Immediately after the reserve entrance, three fallow deer. They are not shy, as there is no hunting here.

In the Oranjekom pond: male and female tufted ducks. Also gadwall ducks. A little grebe. A grey heron lands.

Nuthatch and great spotted woodpecker sound.

In the next pond, from the hide, four female and one male goosanders.

A bit further away on that pond, a male mandarin duck.
