Turnstone, sanderlings, sunset and North Sea


Sanderling and turnstone, 21 January 2020, Schoorl

After 20 January 2020 in the Schoorlse Duinen nature reserve came 21 January. When we saw this sanderling and this turnstone on a North Sea pier.

In the morning, we had heard a nuthatch. And a great spotted woodpecker pecking wood on a tree.

Late in the afternoon, we went to the North Sea beach. Oystercatchers. Two great cormorants land on the North Sea near the pier.

A lesser black-backed gull flying.

On the pier, the turnstone and the sanderling, already mentioned. The sanderling flew away. The turnstone stayed a bit longer.

Then, no more birds, only waves at the pier.

Sunset, 21 January 2020, Schoorl

And the sunset over the North Sea.

And the sunset over the Schoorl sand dunes.

And the silhouette of a Wagyu cow as the sun set.
