This photo shows a red-crested pochard couple. The female on the left, the male on the right.

As they swam, there were big waves in the water because of the wind.
Even among reed plants along the bank.
At Het Hol nature reserve, the water was a bit quieter.
A grey heron.

Still further, great cormorants sitting near ditches. And a kestrel flying.
As I got out of the train, along the canal, an Egyptian goose couple with still very young goslings.
