This video is called Birds of Texel.
North of De Bol nature reserve, male and female tufted ducks swimming.
A parasol mushroom. Probably a result of today’s rain after a long drought.
We continue to the beach. We see this sanderling.
And another sanderling.
Sometimes, the sanderlings fly away. But they always come back to somewhere along the tide line, to feed.
On a jetty, a great cormorant.
And other birds; like this ruddy turnstone cleaning its feathers.
A sandwich tern flies past.
In shallow water close to the jetty, a common gull standing.
On the beach, a bigger relative: a herring gull. It tries to disentangle seashells joined together.
We continue to the Robbenjager. A group of twenty collared doves.
In a bush near the hide, this robin.
Near that bush, three rabbits grazing.
And a snipe.
Near the parking lot, a male pheasant.
And a female pheasant.
Stay tuned for the next blog post about the north of Texel on 5 October 2014!
