After 5 October 2014 on Texel island came 6 October. Like the day before, we went to the beach near De Cocksdorp. There, we met this sanderling, feeding near a beached jellyfish.
Eight brent geese flying past.
Two common terns on a sandbank.
Then, this female eider duck.
Then, a flock of ruddy turnstones. They profit from the water near the jetty. That water is both deep enough and not too deep for bathing; and rather quiet now, as it is next to the jetty with no high tide yet.
After the bath, the turnstones let their feathers dry, cleaning them. On this photo, behind the turnstone, a purple sandpiper. And a herring gull.
In the sand dunes, we see a male stonechat, a robin and a hare.
And this male pheasant.
A bit further, a common linnet. Either a female or a juvenile.
Then, from the north of Texel to Wagejot nature reserve in the east.
As we sit down, brent geese, and a teal, swim.
Later, the geese graze on an islet.
Near the Lankasterdijk dike, goldfinches, like yesterday.
