Texel, kestrel and teal


This video from the Netherlands is called Texel bird paradise.

23 October 2013. To Texel island.

In Den Helder harbour: black-headed gulls and starlings.

The ferry is nearly in Texel harbour. A great cormorant flies. A herring gull. A jackdaw lands on the ship.

In Den Hoorn village, a blackbird in a tree with berries.

And a great tit.

We walk to nature reserve De Petten. Lesser black-backed gulls.

Shelducks. Scores of teal. Gadwall ducks.

An oystercatcher. A redshank.

A kestrel flies past.

A curlew in a meadow.

On the other side of the hill, the Mokbaai bay. A great cormorant. Hundreds of waders; but there is a storm, so the binoculars can’t be stable to see what waders,

Along the Paadje van Drijver foodpath, meadow pipits. A pheasant calls.

Texel October 2013 storm: here.
