Common whitethroat, mallards and gadwalls


Mallards and gadwall, 20 May 2020

After my earlier blog post, still 20 May 2020 in the sand dunes nature reserve. We walked away from the lake, just south of Egmond aan Zee village. Just to the south of that lake, in the next lake, were these three mallards dabbling, and a gadwall duck swimming behind them.

Further away, a little grebe swimming.

Meanwhile, the mallards were still dabbling.

The gadwalls had moved to another part of the lake.
