Egyptian geese and dabchik


This is a little grebe video.

Today, from the train south of Hillegom: six great cormorants sitting on a windmill.

Later, in the national park Zuid-Kennemerland: nuthatch sounds and a robin coming close.

At the great bird lake: many coots.

Young mute swans.

A great cormorant landing on the water surface.

Later, three great cormorants standing on the bank.

They spread their wings to dry.

Though water birds, like ducks, they don’t have the ducks’ self-drying feathers.

Also on the lake bank: Egyptian geese grazing.

From the hide: tufted ducks. Gadwall. Common pochard.

And a dabchik, world’s smallest grebe species. It dives often and manages to catch a small fish.

Someone else sees a kingfisher.
