Spoonbill and avocet

Today, again to the Eempolder, but to a more northern part than last time.

Along the Meentdijk: grey herons, barn swallows.


A flying redshank sits down on a pole.

Stock doves flying. And many black-tailed godwits.

On a pond, mallards and tufted ducks.

Mute swan.

A great cormorant sitting on a small windmill.

A lapwing.

A common tern on a pole in the next pond.

Canada geese with young.

A male reed bunting, singing from a sorrel plant.

Reed warbler sounds.

A painted lady butterfly.

Sand martins flying.

Egyptian geese.

Black headed gulls.

A ringed plover.

A great crested grebe with three youngsters.

A spoonbill, flying. Later, another one.

An avocet flying across a meadow.

A lesser black backed gull.

Black-tailed godwits again.

An oystercatcher.

Finally, two marsh harriers.
