This video is about a black tern on its nest.
20 June 2015: to the Ooijpolder nature reserve, just east of Nijmegen city in the Netherlands.
On a sandy bank of the Waal river, mallards and a carrion crow.
Barn swallows flying around.
A whitethroat sings. So does a reed bunting.
A white stork flying.
Sound of a chiffchaff. And of a grasshopper warbler. A rare bird in the Netherlands, but here there are several.
In the Oude Waal, a lake which used to be the river bed long ago, tufted ducks swim. And a great crested grebe couple with four chicks.
A jay and a magpie flying. A cuckoo calling.
Flowering rush flowers.
A flock of goldfinches flying past.
A red-tailed bumblebee on a flower.
A reed warbler sings.
On the south side of the Oude Waal lake, a common tern flying. Also some black terns. A bit further, there is a black tern nesting colony on small artificial islands. Parents feed chicks.
Two spoonbills. Grey lag geese.
A shelduck couple with five ducklings, already not much smaller than their parents.
Three redshanks on the bank.
A hare running through the grass.
When we are almost back in Nijmegen, about twenty lapwings flying.
