This September 2017 video, from the air, is about Lienden village in Gelderland province in the Netherlands.
North of Lienden is the Marspolder nature reserve; where we went on 23 April 2018.
Much of this area became a nature reserve recently.
We arrived at Rhenen railway station. House sparrow. Blackcap singing. Ribwort plantain growing.
Arriving at the Marsdijk, a jay flying.
A chaffinch sings.
In the Rhine river swim two great crested grebes,
Grey lag geese. An oystercatcher on the bank.
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.
As we walk back, green woodpecker and greenfinch sound.
A little owl on a polled willow.
In a pond, a mallard couple and a male mandarin duck.
Nature is so wonderful, Dear Kitty.. 🙂
Yes, there will be more about Lienden this week. After that, the reports on birds in China will start again 🙂
