Wigeons, other Texel island ducks

Wigeons, 10 March 2016

Still 10 March 2016 on Texel island. After we were at Dijkmanshuizen nature reserve, we continued to De Zandkes nature reserve. Scores of wigeons were present.

There were two teal couples and a tufted duck couple as well, but mainly wigeons.

While most wigeons grazed, some watched whether there was any danger.

These wigeons marked the end of the last full day of our stay on Texel.
