Birds, lake, cows in Schoorl sand dunes


Vogelmeer, Schoorl 19 January 2020

After 18 January 2020 in the Schoorl sand dunes nature reserve came 19 January. We went to this lake, called ‘Vogelmeer‘ (bird lake). Like all photos in this blog post, this is a Lensbaby photo.

As we started walking, we noted two flowering common daisies, where two days earlier there had been only one.

Great tit, great spotted woodpecker sounds.

Heather and crowberry plants in the Waterbosvlakte heathland.

We arrived at the ‘bird lake’. Unfortunately, not any birds; though there were footprints of birds, probably geese, in the mud of the bank.

Clouds over the lake predicted rain.

Wagyu cow, Schoorl 19 January 2020

As we walked along the east bank of the lake, we met a herd of cows. These cows are there to keep the landscape open. They are Wagyu cows, originally from Japan.

As we walked back, we saw this moss on this tree.
