Curlews and golden plovers

Today, to Starrevaart nature reserve.

In the northern part of Vlietland, a male pheasant and two females, all molting.

Near the hide, people are clearing away vegetation from the island, to make it fit breeding ground for common terns etc. next spring.

Over a hundred lapwings.

Great crested grebes. Gadwall ducks. Great cormorants. Mute swans.

Shovelers. A shelduck.

As the canoe of the people who cleared away plants leaves the island, hundreds of curlews fly away from the shallows where they had been resting. So do over a thousand gray leg geese.

A great egret.

A ruddy duck.

Scores of golden plovers.

This is a golden plover video.

A common tern flies past near the hide.
