This photo shows wild pansies which we saw on 20 May 2020 in the sand dunes nature reserve, on the day after 19 May.
As we start walking, a blackbird sings. And a chiffchaff.
A cuckoo calls.
A brimstone butterfly.
A wood warbler sings.
We arrive at the hide where we saw little grebes in the lake. This time, we see only a coot couple with their youngsters. The littles grebes are audible, not visible.
A small, but noisy flock of starlings.
A male chaffinch sings from the top of a bush.
Small heath butterflies.
We arrive at an area with many wild pansies.
And other plants adapted to this sandy environment.
We arrive at a lake, not far from Egmond aan Zee village.
Two little grebes swimming.
And a coot.
Stay tuned, as there will be a sequel to this blog post!
