White-tailed eagles and lapwings


Sunday 30 September 2012.

As my earlier blog post said, our ship passed through the lock in Lauwersoog from the Wadden Sea to the Lauwersmeer.

Like on 28 September, we were in Lauwersmeer national park again.

A great cormorant.

Five gadwall ducks flying.

Then, a highlight of our journey to Schiermonnikoog and Rottum islands and back: first, we see one white-tailed eagle.

Then we see two white-tailed eagles.

Finally, three eagles: the adult couple nesting here are flying around with their daughter, fledged this year.

As the ship comes closer to Zoutkamp harbour, scores, then hundreds, of lapwings flying.

And a great egret.

The ship lands in Zoutkamp. We disembark, with many good memories.
