Today, looking for birds on Goeree island.
In Stellendam harbour, tufted and gadwall ducks.
Great crested grebes.
At the wetland not far from the harbour: curlews and oystercatchers.
In a meadow, a group of gray lag geese, with some white-fronted geese.
A bit further, brent geese.
Then, Volgerland nature reserve. Northern lapwings. Shelducks. Great black-backed gulls. Wigeon swimming.
Shoveler ducks. A female common pochard.
Then, we arrive at the Brouwersdam, the dike between Goeree and Schouwen islands.
A sanderling on a small beach.
Turnstones on the dike.
A male common scoter swimming.
This is a common scoter video from Norway, where they nest.
Two red-breasted merganser males.
No seals near the Brouwersdam today; maybe because there is much wind?
I will tell about the birds on Schouwen today in another blog post.
