Woodpecker, reed buntings, wren and plants


This August 2018 video is about the Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen.

18 March 2012.

After we went to the sea through the Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen nature reserve, we returned.

We pass a bunker in the dunes. During the nazi occupation, it was used by Hitler’s Wehrmacht. Now, by wintering bats.
