North of Lienden is the Marspolder nature reserve; where we went on 23 April 2018.
Much of this area became a nature reserve recently.
Arriving at the Marsdijk, a jay flying.
A chaffinch sings.
In the Rhine river swim two great crested grebes,
Two great cormorants fly past.
Lady’s smock flowers.
White dead-nettle flowers.
Edible frogs in a ditch. Like this one.
In the nature reserve, male and female tufted ducks. And a great crested grebe couple.
A little owl on a polled willow.
In a pond, a mallard couple and a male mandarin duck.
