Wren, jays and bramblings


This 2015 video from Britain says about itself:

BTO Bird ID – Chaffinch & Brambling

Chaffinch is one of our most common and familiar birds, but young birds and females are harder to identify than the stunning males. In winter, Chaffinches are joined by their northern cousins, Brambling. How can you pick them out in the midst of Chaffinches?

Still 22 January 2019 at Oude Buisse Heide nature reserve.

In the afternoon, we walked along a path with signs showing poems by, and information about, Dutch socialist poetess Henriette Roland Holst.

Unfortunately, I cannot show you pictures of these poems and of beautiful snowy landscapes today yet, as the photos still have to be sorted out.

We saw a wren. Heard jays calling. A mixed flock of chaffinches and bramblings on the forest floor. Birdwatching was not so easy today, as snow kept falling on the binoculars.
