Spoonbills and shelduck ducklings

This video is about nature reserve Polders Poelgeest in the Netherlands.

Today, once again to the nature reserve which I discovered when Baillon’s crakes nested there.

Swifts flying over the southern lake.

Gray lag geese with goslings. One adult goose with a green band with a number.

A reed bunting sings. A grey heron on the opposite bank of the lake.

A marsh warbler sings in the reedbed in the northern part of the southern lake.

Barn swallows flying.

In the northern lake, a shelduck swims with ten ducklings. The youngsters are already over half adult shelduck size. So, they are less in danger of predation by now.

On the island, many black-headed gulls. Two spoonbills, cleaning their feathers. Egyptian geese. Scores of Canada geese swimming. A lesser black-backed gull.

Black-tailed godwits wading in shallow water. One of them near an avocet.

A great cormorant flies.

A meadow brown butterfly.

Edible frog sound.

A female tufted duck with three ducklings, which drive frequently.

Not far away, a coot with a small chick.

At the eastern side of the northern lake, one of two redshanks takes off, calling.

An oystercatcher on an islet.

Two great crested grebes swimming.
