Yesterday we spent almost the entire day stalking birds. Around evening time we saw this lot by the river (aided by Wil’s excellent telescope), except in vast quantities!
Names – roughly from left to right: black-tailed godwits (gruttos), curlews (wulpen), lapwings (kievitten), black-headed gulls (kokmeeuwen) and sunbathing cormorants (aalscholvers). At the front right are several oyster catchers (scholeksters), and to their left a high-spirited redshank (the excellently named tureluur).
Here are some close-ups:
