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.
Flowers which have stopped flowering on the bank.
Edible frog sound.
Lesser bulrush on the bank. We are now on meandering old river, east of Kalenberg village.
A male black-tailed skimmer dragonfly lands on our boat.
Its female flowers are below, the smaller male flowers above.
Then, a marsh harrier flies past.
Young mallards swimming.
Water soldier flowers.
There will be more on that day in the Weerribben on this blog. So, stay tuned!
