Bittern, buzzard, bearded reedlings


Bittern area, September 2021

This photo shows the view from a hide in the Rottige Meente nature reserve in Friesland province in the Netherlands. In September, we saw a bittern there. All three photos in this blog post are cellphone photos.

A few days later, a buzzard, hundreds of lapwings and a marsh harrier from that hide.

Nearly all days, bearded reedlings. And dragonflies.

And gadwall ducks. Sometimes also mallards and shovelers.
