Birding instead of photographing

The rare Glaucous Gull in Scheveningen

At the moment I have a rather busy schedule, so not much time to spend on photo projects. However, when I can, I quickly venture out for some birding in the area – or to see some ‘specials’. Earlier this week I did my yearly check on a Tawny Owl (Bosuil) and yesterday I hurried towards a place where the rare Falcated Duck (Bronskopeend) had been sighted. Originally from East-Asia, this could very well be an escape. However since nothing really indicates so, me and many other birders hope that it will prove to be a vagrant visitor ! This morning I paid a quick visit to the harbor, to check upon the Kestrels’s Place (Torenvalk Nestkast), that Wim van Yperen has had installed as a replacement for the previous and recently destroyed nest this couple used. Both male and female were present –  as was Wim. Click on this link to see more about this project. Last but not least a stop at another rare visitor: Glaucous Gull (Grote Burgemeester) that has been hanging around here for some weeks now. And now ? Back to work 😉 .
