This video shows spoonbills flying over the wetland near the Nauertogt road near Koedijk village in North Holland province in the Netherlands. We went there, and to other nature reserves in that area, on 23 August 2015.
A northern wheatear on a pole.
Barn swallows fly past.
We continue. On the opposite bank of a canal, spoonbills cleaning their feathers. And a great cormorant.
And a meadow pipit on the road.
Also a common tern.
We arrive at the northern end of the Hondsbossche Zeewering marine dike, near Petten village. This photo shows the view to the south; there are major works to reinforce the dike with sand in front of it.
And this photo shows the view to the north, where the beach attracts tourists.
A hobby flying south along the coastline. Probably, all the way to Africa.
Stay tuned, as there will be more on my blog about birds in this area!
