Herons, hare and barnacle geese

Common gull, Zeevang, 16 November 2013

Still, 16 November 2013 in Zeevang nature reserve. After our earlier time there, to the IJsselmeer lake coast. Near a harbour, someone feeds birds. It attracts mallards and black-headed gulls. And some common gulls. A tufted duck swims there as well.

Hare, Zeevang, 16 November 2013

Inland, there are meadows. On the bank of a canal, a hare tries to look very inconspicuous.

Finally, to the harbour of Edam. Common polypody ferns on the harbour walls. A great black-backed gull swims.
