White storks are back, hares never left

Chrysanthemum leucanthemum

Yesterday, to the nature reserve.

On my way, many crocuses and at least one oxeye daisy flowering.

Not just in Leiden, also here, at the nest in the meadow south of the nature reserve, the white storks have returned from winter migration.

In the reserve, many flowering snowdrops.

Many birds singing.

A ring-necked parakeet screaming.

Later, a great spotted woodpecker making its spring sound on a branch.

On the meadow east of the reserve: couples of Egyptian geese and mute swans.

Grey lag geese.

Three hares.

Walking back: two great crested grebes in the castle pond.

A jay.
