Many godwits, ten Egyptian goslings

This Dutch 15 March 2016 video shows meadow birds: young northern lapwings, a redshank nest and black-tailed godwits with youngsters.

Today, again to the place where I once saw Baillon’s crakes.

Near the entrance Canada geese, grey lag geese and coots. A bit further, jackdaws.

Standing in shallow water in the northern lake, sometimes flying, often calling: about 150 black-tailed godwits, probably just back from Africa.

Near them are northern lapwings, oystercatchers, black-headed and herring gulls. Two great cormorants.

Ten tufted ducks swimming. Also northern shovelers. Teal. Mute swans.

Near the railway a male blackbird and magpies. A moorhen swims.

In the lake, a male and a female common pochard. And a great crested grebe.

Finally, in the northern canal an Egyptian goose couple swims with their ten goslings.
