On 14 October 2017, to Oud Poelgeest woodland. Quite some fungi, like these vermilion waxcaps.

On the banks of the water around Oud Poelgeest, sleeping mallards.

A bit further four mute swans, including a juvenile.

Jays flying.

Many mute swans, including young ones, in the castle pond.

Ring-necked parakeet sound. Robin sound.

As we cross the bridge out of Oud Poelgeest, a great crested grebe swimming.

We go to the Heempark.

Heempark leaves, 14 October 2017

Many leaves had autumn colours already.

Berries, 14 October 2017

There were berries.

At the pond, a grey heron hunting. Some of what it catches is so small they are probably water insects, not fish.

Two coots. A moorhen swimming.

Trees, 14 October 2017

Some trees had unusual shapes.
