Texel sanderlings and wheatear


This is a Dutch video about birds on Texel island in May 2013.

After 8 October, Thursday 9 October 2014 on Texel.

First, to the Slufter. On our way, a flock of golden plovers on a field.

Then, the sand dunes south of the Slufter.

We reach the North Sea beach.

Sanderlings, Texel, 9 October 2014

Sanderlings are not immediately conspicuous, being small and usually alone or in small groups.

However, they are less shy than many other bird species.

Northern wheatear, Texel, 9 October 2014

As we go back through the sand dunes, a northern wheatear.

As we go back through central Texel, a redshank lands on a pole in a canal.
