Spoonbills and a little grebe

This is a common sandpiper video, from Seville, Spain.

Near Weesp on 31 August, a great egret from the train.

In bird reserve Starrevaart, seen from the hide: a Bahama pintail duck; maybe an escapee from a waterfowl collection.

Northern lapwings. Golden plovers. Shelducks. Common terns. Spoonbills. Curlews. Gadwalls. Common pochards and tufted ducks diving. Many grey lag geese and great cormorants.

On a small island, two common sandpipers and a ruff.

Diving, not that far from where birds are sitting on an ex-pipeline: little grebe.

A kingfisher flying under a meter away outside the hide.

Kingfishers and their food leftovers: here.

Bird migration in the Netherlands, early September 2008: here.
