At the lake bank: oystercatchers and herring gulls. And two shelducks flying away. The light is not very good here; so we continue around the lake.
There is a narrow country road through the meadows around the lake. On the left side: many wigeons grazing.
The goose at the front of this picture has dark stripes; it is mature.
Starlings and curlews in a meadow.
A black-tailed godwit on the bank of a ditch.
A buzzard on a pole.
We continue to the De Putten lake.
