Eider duck and house martins, Terschelling

This is a video of a male common eider duck, made in Huizen, the Netherlands.

Today, first by train, then by boat, to Terschelling island.

From the train, a lapwing. A buzzard near Steenwijk.

Just past Leeuwarden, common tern. Then, two spoonbills and many shelducks.

A male tufted duck.

At the harbour of Harlingen, jackdaw, black-headed gull. Herring gull.

A swift flies over the ship.

At the harbour entrance, female eider duck. Later, at the Pollendam, male eider and oystercatchers.

Later, on the island, a walk around Liesterplak marsh.

House martins. A common curlew. Male and female shoveler. An adult great spotted woodpecker goes into a treehole to feed its audible offspring.

Traditional duck catching on Terschelling: here.
