Raven and coal tits


This is a video about De Stulp, Lage Vuursche, the Netherlands.

Today, to the woodland and heathland area of Lage Vuursche, in Utrecht province in the Netherlands; where I was last September as well.

Soon after starting to walk around De Stulp, three coal tits close to us on the forest floor. We could hear the calls of goldcrests. However, these small birds, the smallest birds of Europe, are usually high near the top of big conifers, so they are difficult to spot.

There are fungi, including sulphur tuft and Trametes versicolor.

Many chaffinches, especially a bit more to the south, near the Pluismeer lake. Also groups of their relatives, bramblings.

A raven, a rare bird in the Netherlands, flies past. The species had been extinct in the Netherlands, but was reintroduced in the twentieth century.

Sounds of nuthatch, great tit and blue tit; and of a wren.

Also, quite some buzzards; at one time, two flying close to each other. And jays. And great spotted woodpeckers.
