This is a red-necked grebe video.
After 1 May 2015, 2 May 2015 near Dwingelderveld national park, in Westerveld local authority. This is one of few places in the Netherlands where one may see red-necked grebes.
In Dwingelderveld, cranes nest as well. Photos: here.
We did not see red-necked grebes or cranes on that 2 May; but we did see other beautiful birds.
Early in the morning, curlew sound. A chaffinch sings. Sounds of song thrush, willow warbler, cuckoo, robin, chiffchaff and wood pigeon.
Of course, the blue tits are present again.
A great tit in a tree.
Near Kraloo village, three roe deer in a meadow.
