Wigeons, great egrets and fungi

This 9 September 2015 Dutch video is about Duivenvoorde estate, near Voorschoten town.

We went there again on 16 January 2016. The video shows Duivenvoorde in summer. However, we went there on a wintry and windy day. Often sun, sometimes a hailstorm.

Near the entrance, coots swimming.

Great egret and grey herons on a meadow.

Egyptian geese.

A buzzard calls.

Blackbirds and a redwing on a meadow.

In a pond, a male tufted duck, mallard and gadwall ducks. And moorhens.

A robin on a bush.

Under a big tree, dozens of earthstars.

We continued to De Horsten estate. Two hares in a meadow.

Near the entrance of De Horsten, coral spot fungi on a fallen tree.

Before we returned, hundreds of wigeons swimming and on a canal bank. Grey lag geese and mute swans. A northern lapwing.

And a group of siskins in woodland.
