This is a video of an Egyptian goose; recorded in Spain.
Today, to Schaep en Burg and Boekesteyn nature reserves.
A great cormorant flying overhead. A bit later, a grey heron.
The “Boeke” in Boekesteyn comes from a Dutch word for beech tree. There are many beech trees; and, in this time of the year, many beechnuts.
Many chaffinches were present to eat beechnuts. They were lucky that these beeches grew along a path in a nature reserve, not along a road for cars. As chaffinches trying to eat beechnuts on roads may get killed by cars.
Many sounds of nuthatches. Great tits; blue tits; robins; blackbirds; wood pigeons.
It had been freezing during the night, and many ditches were still frozen. Two Egyptian geese flying across a bit of open water.
In spite of the frost, still some fungi, including sulphur tuft and Trametes versicolor.
On the way back, in Gooilust, candlesnuff fungus on a tree stump.
