This March 2019 Dutch video is about the Sophiapolder island in the Netherlands, which recently became a freshwater tidal nature reserve.
After our visit to the Crezéepolder nature reserve, we went there on 8 September 2019.
As the ferry arrived at the island, a Cetti’s warbler sang.
A kingfisher sitting on a branch above the water.
Shelducks swimming with their ducklings.
A peacock butterfly on a flower along the footpath.
A northern lapwing sits down on the wooden walkway across the water.
Then, a female marsh harrier tries to catch a duck. For a few seconds she grabs it, but has to drop it. Then, she goes to the shore, feeding on a dead animal there. A carrion crow next to her tries to get some of the food.

This 2018 video from Alaska is about long-tailed ducks.
As the tweet below here shows, on 27 June 2019 it became known that for the first time ever, long-tailed ducks had nested in the Netherlands. Four ducklings had hatched on an island in the new Marken Wadden nature reserve in the IJsselmeer lake.
A very unusual, southern, site for this mainly Arctic species. The young birds will eat especially mosquitoes, which are plentiful there.
