To Marspolder nature reserve in Dutch Gelderland

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.
