Bathing meadow pipits, goslings of Terschelling island

This 29 January 2013 video is about a bittern at the then frozen Meisterplak lake on Terschelling island.

After 19 September 2019 on Terschelling came 20 September.

That day began for us with Gymnopus confluens fungi along the path to Doodemanskisten lake.

We arrived at Meisterplak lake. It looked very different from the winter 2013 video. Not only no bittern and no ice. The water level was very low. That is because there is work going on against the unwanted invasive water plant species New Zealand pigmyweed.
