On 2 June 2019, we went to the Leiden botanical garden. Where we saw these flowers.
Iris germanica yellow flowers.
Cambridge milk parsley attracting honeybees.
A chiffchaff calls.
From the Clusius garden to another part.
A sign at a ‘messy’ area says this is a special area for hedgehogs. The botanical garden values them as they keep the numbers of plant eating snails down.
These flowers were present.
So was this tulip, now past its prime.
Great spotted woodpecker sound.
And this one; I think a great yellow bumblebee.
On the other side of the canal, an Egyptian goose couple in love. Also two jackdaws.
A lesser black-backed gull lands on the botanical garden side of the canal to pick up a piece of food.
These flowers grow around a big London planetree.
Swifts flying overhead.
Another flower attracted this honeybee.
A great crested grebe swims in the canal.
In the botanical garden stream, pondskaters.
