Stonechat, butterflies and wild pansies


This June 2019 video says about itself:

Singing Common Whitethroat (Sylvia communis) in Heemskerk, the Netherlands.

This is a common and widespread typical warbler which breeds throughout Europe and across much of temperate western Asia. This small passerine bird is strongly migratory, and winters in tropical Africa, Arabia, and Pakistan.

After yesterday, again to the coastal sand dunes nature reserve on 18 May 2020.
