This March 2019 Dutch video is about the Sophiapolder island in the Netherlands, which recently became a freshwater tidal nature reserve.
After our visit to the Crezéepolder nature reserve, we went there on 8 September 2019.
As the ferry arrived at the island, a Cetti’s warbler sang.
A kingfisher sitting on a branch above the water.
Shelducks swimming with their ducklings.
A peacock butterfly on a flower along the footpath.
A northern lapwing sits down on the wooden walkway across the water.
Then, a female marsh harrier tries to catch a duck. For a few seconds she grabs it, but has to drop it. Then, she goes to the shore, feeding on a dead animal there. A carrion crow next to her tries to get some of the food.
