Green woodpecker sound.
A singing whitethroat.
A cuckoo calls.
A blackbird sings.
A moth lands on cottongrass.
We arrive at the German border.
A German signs warns this is hazardous moorland; only accessible outside the birds’ breeding season.
There is a lookout tower, with a bilingual Dutch and German sign.
We continued on the boardwalk.
And saw more cottongrass.
And more young willow and birch trees.
After leaving the Wooldse veen, we go north.
East of the Harkel Wassinkweg road are two small lakes.
On a bank, an Egyptian geese couple, very much in love.
Also, two northern lapwings. Mallards.
On another bank, a little ringed plover.
A little grebe swims.
A brimstone butterfly flies.
