Golden plovers and shelducks

This video is about northern lapwings and golden plovers in Biesbosch national park in the Netherlands.

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.
