Great egret and purple heron


This is a purple heron video.

Today, along the Tienhovense vaart.

Many barn swallows, some sitting on leafless tree branches.

Many grey lag geese, some Egyptian geese, and a barnacle goose.

A buzzard flying overhead.

Pondskaters on the ditch.

First a great egret flying past. Later a (the same?? ) great egret standing near the bank of a pond. The barnacle goose and grey lag geese don’t mind it. However, a mute swan thinks that the egret is too close to the cygnets. So, it drives the egret away to a bank of the ditch a bit further. Later, the egret comes back. The swan drives it away again. However, the great egret comes back again.

Many grey wagtails on the meadow.

Also a purple heron flying away.
