Snipe and teal


Today, again to Polders Poelgeest, like two days ago.

Where the Baillon’s crakes used to nest, today a water rail.

Two gadwall ducks. At least ten snipe, resting or looking for food. About ten teal.

A bit further, a dabchick.

Across the bridge: shovelers. And tufted ducks: this time both male and female.

On the meadow: still Canada, grey lag, and domestic geese. A bit further away, three Egyptian geese.

Black-headed, common, and herring gulls.

A painted lady butterfly.

A great crested grebe, near muscovy ducks.

Goldfinches on thistles.

Foxes removal from Scottish Island boosts nesting ducks: here.
