Spoonbills and snipe

This is a video about the Polders bij Poelgeest nature reserve in the Netherlands.

After last week, I went there again today.

In a canal near the entrance, a great crested grebe and a great crested cormorant swim and dive.

Gadwall, coot, moorhen.

A common tern flying.

Teal in the southern lake.

A group of goldfinches, mostly juveniles, feeding on thistles.

In the northern lake, two lesser black-backed gulls. Black-headed gulls. Two lapwings. Two adult spoonbills.

A bit further, a juvenile tufted duck.

Near the northern canal, two Egyptian geese parents with two goslings about half their size.

Shoveler ducks.

A bit later, three spoonbills near the northern lake island.

On a muddy southern lake islet, a snipe resting.
