This photo from the small lakes north of the Wooldse veen nature reserve shows moss plants. Some people would call this ‘flowering’ moss. However, mosses are ‘primitive’ plants, which have no seeds or flowers, but spores.
The photo is from 2 May 2017; two days after 30 April 2017 in Winterswijk.
Near the farm, the tulips still flowering.
A buzzard flies.
Great spotted woodpecker and green woodpecker sounds.
A whitethroat sings near the Oude Borkense baan bridge.
In the afternoon, we went to the Wooldse veen.
Willow warbler, chiffchaff, cuckoo sounds.
On the boardwalk, a big spider: a raft spider.
A tree pipit flying and singing.
A male stonechat on a shrub.
Two goldfinches in a tree.
As we go back, we arrive at the two small lakes.
In the northern lake, a female tufted duck.
At the southern lake: a grey heron. Barn swallows flying.
The two Egyptian geese come back; still much in love with each other.
Two starlings bathing.
