Turnstone in summer plumage, photo

Recently, on 14 April, on the IJmuiden harbour jetty, the turnstones were still in winter plumage.

However, this photo from IJmuiden yesterday, shows that spring is progressing, as some turnstones by now are in summer plumage.

Another sign of spring: this morning, a coot sitting on the nest near the bridge. On eggs already?
