The last couple of days I tried to frame the Little Bittern (Woudaap), but hardly got a chance to see it. The one time if flew up, my camera didn’t focus in time 🙁 . Anyway, I spent some nice hours and evenings talking to other birders 😉 . Unexpectedly both yesterday and today I ran into some Bluethroats (Blauwborst) that were willing to pose, so that made up for the lost Bitterns.. You can always rely on these little friend 😉 . Also I got a tip from Remco to have a look at some juvenile Bearded Reedlings (Baarman), which I found, although they stayed quite far away.
As you can tell from both the Willow Warblers (Fitis) and the Bluethroats: feeding the little ones is taking it’s toll. They look rather worn out….Well, at least some shots the share after this long and warm weekend !
