This 2011 video is about the Drents-Friese Wold national park in ther Netherlands.
1 May 2013.
After yesterday, still in the Drents-Friese Wold.
In the garden, a male blackcap.
First to the Doldersumse veld.
On the edge of heathland and forest, a male linnet.
A bit further, a mistle thrush, high up a tree.
On the Wapserveld, a brimstone butterfly.
Young edible frogs, just over a centimeter in size.
A common redstart male in a tree. See on the migration of this species here.
A speckled wood butterfly.
Not far away, in Berkenheuvel nature reserve, is the Onderduikershol.
Here, in 1943, local anti-nazis built a secret hiding place in a sandy hill. Here, people persecuted by the nazi occupiers, and British and US American pilots whose planes had been downed, hid.
In November 1944, the German SS and Wehrmacht discovered the hiding place. They arrested eleven people and sent them to concentration camps. Like with Anne Frank‘s family, only one person of those eleven prisoners survived those camps.
In front of the Onderduikershol, fresh flowers put there by schoolchildren.
Near a lake at Oude Willem, a white stork.
Tufted ducks and mallards swimming.

In the first photo—-the bird looks very well fed!”
Yes, it probably came back recently from a long spring migration from Africa; but it lives in a nature reserve 🙂
