They had been ‘kissing'; unfortunately just before the photo.
We walked back.
This migrating northern wheatear standing on a rock.
Then, an even more special migratory bird: a short-eared owl passed the jetty!
Unusual, to see this uncommon bird, a land bird, flying south over the North Sea waves. Two herring gulls harassed it.
Also, purple sandpipers on the jetty rocks. Some awake.
And some sleepy.
We were back on the continent. Not far from the beginning of the jetty, this black redstart on concrete near a sand dune.
We went to the ‘Vulkaan‘ (the Volcano), a high sand dune south of The Hague. It is a good vantage point for seeing bird migration. The many birdwatchers present saw, eg, song thrushes and mistle thrushes fly past.
