Spoonbill and parasol mushrooms of Vlieland island


Spoonbill, 28 September 2015

After 27 September came 28 September 2015 on Vlieland. This photo shows a spoonbill we saw that day, feeding in shallow Wadden Sea water just south of the island.

Before we saw that spoonbill, as we woke up, a robin sang.

In the Wadden Sea shallow water: curlew, oystercatcher, redshank.

And then, the already mentioned spoonbill. That bird was late for the time of the year; many spoonbills having already gone to Africa on their autumn migration.

We went north, to the North Sea.

In the sand dunes, a parasol mushroom.

On jetties protruding from the beach: many herring gulls. And oystercatchers, ruddy turnstones, carrion crows, and great cormorants.

On the beach, a dead great cormorant. A young bird, as its white breast feathers showed. Its neck buried in the sand.

As we went back, more parasol mushrooms, of various sizes and ages.
