Sedge warbler, marsh harrier, plants


Sedge warbler, 1 August 2017

After our first full day in Weerribben national park in the Netherlands, on 31 July 2017, came our second full day, also by boat, on 1 August. That day we saw this sedge warbler.

Before that, a chaffinch singing early in the morning.

A great cormorant flying. A red admiral butterfly.

A female blue-tailed damselfly sits on water plants. The lower part of her body is under water to deposit eggs.

Then, we saw the sedge warbler.

Ten great cormorants fly past.

Pondskaters on the water.
