Today, we went to the Wasmeer.
In the Wasmeer lake, a coot, barnacle geese and tufted ducks swim. Do the barnacle geese plan to nest here; or are they wintering here, and will they go on spring migration to the Arctic soon? Most barnacle geese nest in the Arctic, but since a few years, some nest in the Netherlands.
Just outside the hide, white nettles flowering.
A female chaffinch with nesting material in her bill sits on a branch.
A bit further, a song thrush sings.
So does a robin.
And a chiffchaff.
A nuthatch flies to its nest in a hole in a tree.
A robin with nesting material in its bill.
Brimstone butterflies flying.
