This is a bearded tit video. This species is also known as bearded reedling (Panurus biarmicus).
Today, to the Lepelaarplassen nature reserve again.
Later, a chiffchaff calling.
The marshy area in the north of the Lepelaarplassen reserve is much drier now than a few weeks ago. So, this time no great egret and other birds there.
Today, people can walk a path with two hides, in a part of the reserve usually not open to the public.
We see quite some bearded tits flying around.
Speckled wood and peacock butterflies.
Hornets; and an underground nest of a smaller ‘normal’ wasp species.
A buzzard flying.
We arrive at the first hide, near a lake. A common tern and a group of great cormorants are trying to catch fish, each in their own way.
Many bearded tits. A common teal. Many dragonflies.
We arrive at the second hide. Hundreds of ducks in the lake: shovelers; pochards, mallards, a few pintail. Great cormorants. And a little grebe, swimming and diving close to the hide.
Before we arrive back at where the walk started: a Polyporus badius fungus.
