Weerribben nature reserve, first day


This is a video about Weerribben nature reserve in the Netherlands; especially about the rare species Lycaena dispar and other butterflies there. Lycaena dispar in Wieden reserve: here.

Today, Monday 25 August, was my first day in Weerribben nature reserve.

Before arriving there, near Steenwijkerwold, many barn swallows flying over the canal.

Many northern lapwings in a meadow.

Near the Hoogeweg, one of over thirty dragonfly and damselfly species of this national park: blue-tailed damselfly.

Soon, another species, sitting down close to the road: scarlet dragonfly. We would see this species again later.

Walking along birch trees. Some with Piptoporus betulinus fungi. Or with great tits.

A small grass snake: dead on the bicycle path.

Another beautiful reddish insect: large red damselfly.

A great cormorant passes by.

A brimstone butterfly.
