This video is about a bluethroat (Luscinia svecica) singing.
On 13 June 2015, to Zouweboezem nature reserve. Before leaving, a song thrush singing near the parking lot.
We passed Lexmond village. A white stork on a tree.
Near the Zouweboezem entrance, a bluethroat. It flew to a pole, four metres away, to sing. Then, it flew to a reed stem to continue singing. It flew back twice to the pole and sang.
About thirty metres behind the bluethroat, on another pole, sat a female marsh harrier. Two northern lapwings flying past.
A pheasant calls.
Blackbird, garden warbler, chiffchaff and wren singing.
A purple heron flying.
A greenfinch on a shrub.
On the footpath, two dead common shrews.
A jay flies past. So do a barn swallow, a great cormorant and a grey heron.
We arrive at the black tern colony. The terns are busy mating and nesting. While a tufted duck and a moorhen swim past.
A sedge warbler sings on a reed stem.
Willow warbler and cuckoo sound.
A buzzard flying.
A male common linnet feeding.
A great spotted woodpecker calls.
Grass rush, yellow flag and creeping crowfoot flowers.

In a lake, scores of Canada geese with goslings. Also grey lag geese and coots.
A young whitethroat.
On a bank, common club-rush growing.
On both sides of the footpath, goldfinches feed on thistle seed. Marsh thistle is one of the species here.
Field horsetail is here as well. In Zouweboezem, it gets taller than in a stony urban environment.
