Friday 28 September 2012.
This is the sequel to the blog post with the earlier Schiermonnikoog wildlife photos made that day.
We returned to the harbour after walking in the western part of the island.
Here, golden plovers on a mudflat near the harbour. Our ship is in the background.
Flocks of starlings flying around.
These are shelducks, on the same mudflat.
A shelduck and a golden plover.
This golden plover still has a bit of the black of its summer plumage on its belly.
One golden plover among shelducks.
Shelducks coming closer to the camera.
Finally, shelducks flying away.
Flocks of lapwings.
Near the dike leading to our ship, a northern wheatear.
After this, our journey continued; sailing from Schiermonnikoog to Rottum.
Stay tuned for more, about Rottum!
