I do have a favorite spot for Bluethroats not too far from where we live, and since there’s a lot of them arriving right now in the Netherlands, I yesterday ealry morning went by to have a look – but unfortunately ‘nobody home’. Hopefully they will arrive soon. Since the sun was shining this morning again, I decided to visit another Bluethroat place, and yes – they were there ! Also some Stonechats and even a kind of salamander – on the bicycle road – I will try to find out what species and come back on that later ;-). For now it was a nice birding day, back to work 🙂
Update: my friend Menno (www.mvdphoto.com) tells me that the salamander is a Common Newt (Lissotriton vulgaris) | Kleine Watersalamander – female
Update evening: found the Eagle Owl again, took some lousy shots, but: I saw it fly two times, it’s enormous ! :-))
