Autumn leaves on it. This is a rare species in the Netherlands.
The 16 October boat trip in the Naardermeer nature reserve landed at the duck decoy. There, these male pintail ducks swam.
Sometimes, female pintail ducks joined them. Sometimes, mallards and domestic ducks.
Sometimes, common pochards.
There was also a kingfisher at the duck decoy.
On 16 October, this grey heron flew over the beautiful Naardermeer nature reserve in the Netherlands.
I went along on a boat trip in the Nardermeer then. The trip was organised by the conservation organisation Natuurmonumenten, owners of the Naardermeer.
The Naardermeer is a lake with many marshy areas.
We saw this great egret.
