Kingfisher, goshawk and flowers


This is a kingfisher video from the Netherlands.

On 11 September 2016, to Tiengemeten island in the Netherlands.

Before the ferry departed, three spoonbills in a wetland.

Canada geese. Grey lag geese. A barnacle goose.

A great egret. A gadwall duck swims.

Ferry to Tiengemeten, 11 September 2016

As the ferry departs, a kingfisher on the right bank of the harbour. Sitting a bit similarly to the kingfisher in the video, though it sits on a branch about 80 centimeter above the water; not on a pole.

As we cross the estuary, a great cormorant.

As we arrive in the harbour of Tiengemeten, a white wagtail and barn swallows flying.

We walk.

On the right side a wetland with spoonbills and barnacle geese.

A snipe and ruffs.

A pintail duck, a shoveler and teal.

Wild teasel; the flowers are gone already.

A marsh harrier flies.

Bristly oxtongue flowers.

Tiengemeten plants, 11 September 2016

Chicory flowers.

A kestrel hovers. A goshawk flies.

A stock dove flies.

Two female pheasants.

Many insects in this warm weather, including twin-lobed deerflies.

A flock of scores of golden plovers flying, with three northern lapwings flying along.

As we arrive at the harbour again, a common gull on a mooring dolphin.
